A mile-long sandy beach six miles west of Newquay, yet retaining an unspoilt rural backdrop.
Whilst never as busy as the main Newquay beaches Holywell Bay gets pretty busy in summer. Plenty of parking and amenities in the village.

Been staying at Holywell Bay nearly every summer for the last 15 years & never tire of it, despite it getting busier the last few years. You have to be an early bird to get a parking space in the NT carpark though! They queue up the road from about 11am when it’s sunny

Stayed at Trevornick a few times and loved the days on the beach. Get there and it’s up to you…
