Crantock Beach lies on the River Gannel estuary and is a beautiful expanse of golden beach with good surf, ideal for all abilities. With extensive dunes, rock pools and caves to explore it is part of an extensive stretch of sands between the headlands of Pentire and West Pentire, with Crantock situated at the mouth of the River Gannel. Access to the beach is via steep dunes. Be aware the right hand side of the beach meets the River Gannel estuary so to avoid resulting currents it is advisable to bathe towards the left of this lovely bay. Crantock beach is a 15 minute drive from Newquay Town Centre or 45 minute walk from the town centre, buses run regularly to and from.
