Photos of Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall

On a previous post, Fistral Beach - One of Newquay's Finest For Surfing, the photos were taken on a wonderful sunshine day. I spent a couple of days in the area this week, when the weather was quite variable, so there appeared to be many faces of Fistral Beach as the photos show.

The day started with full sunshine, other than a few fluffy white clouds - photo above.

The long beach began to fill with surfers and sun lovers.

Gradually though a few more clouds appeared.

Later, the early evening had a slight chill, so not many people about.

A few cliffside flowers did their best to brighten the view.

Later that evening most of the people had gone and the majestic Headland Hotel took center stage.

The next day, the weather wasn't brilliant, a slight drizzle in the air, but the surfers were on their boards.

  1. Great looking beach that stretches forever. I guess it takes more than a little drizzle to put surfers off. Lovely photo's as ever.

    1. Thanks David. Many of the UK surfing contests are set on Fistral Beach. I don't think much deters the hard core surfers, they are out there in all weathers.
