Holywell Bay

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.

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