NEWQUAY AND FIS­TRAL BEACH

Cornwall Life - - WALK -

If you love pho­tog­ra­phy – few spots will sat­isfy your de­sire to cap­ture a stun­ning sun­set than Fis­tral Beach in Newquay. Take your cam­era bag on this walk and cap­ture the con­trasts of the pas­toral tran­quil­lity of Cran­tock with the coastal fea­tures of Newquay’s vi­brant shore­line. Peo­ple have lived here since pre­his­toric times, and the walk takes in sites of his­tor­i­cal in­ter­est on both sides of the River Gan­nel, which was once a bustling wa­ter­way but is now a peace­ful salt­marsh, home to wad­ing birds and salt-lov­ing plants. Check the tide times be­fore you leave.

Be­gin your walk at Na­tional Trust Car Park, Cran­tock – TR8 5RN
