Fistral beach is the place for experienced surfers, especially when a southwest wind helps create the fast hollow waves, so often craved for.
The beach is the location for a number of champion surf competions.
Fistral’s sandy beach, bound by Towan Head and Pentire Point, faces west/northwest.
Due to it facing the prevailing westerly winds, the beach is one of England’s top class surfing beaches. Many surfing competitions are held here annually, such as Relentless Boardmasters, the Quicksilver Skins, the UK Pro Surf Tour, and the BUSA Championships.
The beach has many facilities such as restaurants, shop, coffee stand, even shacks for hire.
