Crowned Beach of the Year 2017 by the The Sunday Times in 2017, there’s a lot to love about Lusty Glaze, beyond its fun and fancy name. While it’s a privately-owned beach it has full public access.
Just around the corner from Porth Beach, Lusty Glaze is a sandy beach regardless of the state of the tide and is flanked by dramatic 200ft cliffs. Smaller and less known than its Newquay neighbours, it’s home to an adventure centre making it a good option for watersport fans. Activities such as climbing and abseiling, surfing are at your fingertips, as is the bar and restaurant, beach shop and toilets.
Lifeguarded during the busiest months; from July to September, there’s also a seasonal dog ban at Lusty Glaze from 1 June until 1 September between 9am-6pm.
It’s worth bearing in mind that the beach can only be accessed by a rather steep collection of steps which can be rather strenuous after a day lounging at the beach. There’s a large car park on the field at the top of the beach, but it can get rather busy during the summer.
