About Towan

No votes yet

Located at the southern end of Newquay Bay Towan picks up less swell than the other beaches - it's also OK on a SW wind. This means it is often the only surfable spot around and consequently gets busy

There’s also a half decent left that breaks off the harbour wall at mid-high tide but this tends to get busy and is a fairly local spot
