The Escape Surf School Newquay Cornwall

towan beach newquay cornwall

Our favourite beach, where we operate most of our surf lessons – it’s ideally situated with sweeping views right around Newquay Bay. The beach faces north west which means it picks up swell (which us surfers love) but can be very sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds, which means the waves are usually clean, and lined up perfectly – ideal for learning to surf

With the harbour in the south side and the iconic house on the island at the north side, the beach is lifeguarded between May and September, and also has the Newquay Blue Reef Aquarium. It’s easily accessible, just a minutes’ walk from the surf school and the rest of town
