Walk - Newquay and Fistral Beach
4.6 miles (7.4 km)
National Trust Car Park, Crantock - TR8 5RN National Trust Car Park, Crantock
A walk of contrasts, linking the pastoral tranquility of Crantock with the coastal features of Newquay's vibrant shoreline, with two sandy beaches and many features to interest children. People have lived here since prehistoric times, and the walk visits many sites of historical interest on both sides of the River Gannel, which was once a bustling waterway but is now a peaceful saltmarsh, home to wading birds and salt-loving plants. Check the tide times before you leave.
