Newquay Harbour Beach lies on the western fringe of the large crescent of sand that makes up the seven beaches of Newquay on the North Cornish Coast.
Formerly an important pilchard fishing port, Newquay harbour remains a working harbour and is still home to small fishing vessels as well as pleasure boats. The beach faces northeast and is sheltered by long piers.
Due to its proximity to the town, all the usual facilities are within walking distance and although maybe not Newquay's premier beach it is still worth a visit.
The harbour is also home to Newquay (Pilot Gig) Rowing Club with races usually taking place in September. Also in September is the Newquay Fish Festival, showcasing all the best in Cornish fish and seafood.
There are as you would expect a number of attractions in the greater Newquay area including the Blue Reef Aquarium, Newquay Zoo, seven beaches, each with their own different character and style as well as the Trenance Leisure Park and tea gardens.
After dark, if it needs telling, there are venues to suit all age groups and budgets with an equivalent range of accommodation options.
