More info: Towan beach is central to Newquay which is one of the liveliest resorts in Cornwall. At low tide Towan connects to the neighbouring beaches of Great Western and Tolcarne to become one huge sandy expanse. Towan beach is bordered to the west by the harbour and at the east by 'the Island' a towering rocky outcrop which is connected to the mainland by a suspension footbridge.

Towan is unique in its appeal for surfers as it has something for all abilities. Sitting in the shadow of Towan Head, the beach is protected and is the saviour for many surfers when large swells and high winds prove too much on the coastlines west facing beaches. Widely regarded as the surf capital of the UK, Newquay is a centre for the surf industry in Britain, with many surf stores, board manufacturers and hire shops in the town.

On the seafront is the Blue Reef Aquarium which features an underwater tunnel going through a coral-reef tank with pufferfish, sharks and rays.
