Located on the outskirts of Newquay, Whipsiderry Beach is a hidden gem waiting to be explored. Unlike the busier beaches in the town, this beach is quiet, sheltered and surrounded by cliffs, making it an ideal spot for relaxation and exploration. Visitors can enjoy hours of fun exploring the rock pools that are revealed during low tide.
Despite its close proximity to Newquay, Whipsiderry offers a unique, wilder feel that sets it apart from the town's beaches. Additionally, an enormous island in the middle of the cove adds to the beach's charm.
Visitors should note that access to the beach is via a steep flight of stairs that cling to the cliff face.
