Great Western is one of four Newquay beaches popular with both surfers and families alike, with caves in the surrounding cliffs and rock pools to explore at low tide. This west-facing beach is situated between Towan and Tolcarne beaches and is reached either by walking along the sands at low tide or via a tarmac path to the left of the Great Western Hotel.
