“Such a beautiful area and so different from the busier main beaches in Newquay.”
Located next to the Ice Cream Kiosk is Crantock Surf Hire (click for more) where you can also hire:
- wetsuits and boots.
Crantock has an RNLI Beach Lifeguard service that operates from May through until September.
There are various signs around the beach with regard to where you can swim, dangerous areas and times of tides.
Swimming and bodyboarding is allowed between the red and yellow flags on the main beach with all surf craft allowed between the black and white chequered flags.
If the red flag is flying then there is strictly no bathing at all.
In the river due to strong currents there is strictly no bathing apart from when the tide is out (when the footbridge is in use).
There is a roped off area marked by orange buoys opposite the ferry boathouse where you can swim whilst the tide is in
(whilst ferry is running) but extreme caution should be taken whilst doing so due to strong currents and deep water.
Crantock Surf Hire is located next to the Ice Cream Kiosk at the Newquay end of the beach. Accessible through the cut through to the right hand corner of the National Trust Car Park.
Open from 10am until 5.30pm weather permitting, you can hire a range of Swell & Bullit surf boards and body boards, wetsuits, wetsuit boats, wet shoes, parasols, sun beds, deck chairs and wind breaks.
