You’ll find Booby’s Bay 11 miles from Newquay and just like its neighbouring beaches it’s a popular one with the surfing community. You’ll find a wide sandy beach at Booby’s Bay that’s dotted with rock pools at low tide and we’d recommend parking at Constantine Bay (about half a mile away) or Treyarnon Bay and walking the South West Coast Path to reach it. There’s more parking at Treyarnon Bay, so if you’re driving from Newquay it’s probably best to make it your starting point.
Booby’s Bay and Constantine Bay join at low tide to make one blissfully long sandy beach making it popular with sunbathers and families as well as those who are handy with a surf board. What's a Cornish beach without a unique feature? Look out during your visit as ship wreck can be seen jutting from the sand when the tide’s out. Dogs are allowed at Booby’s Bay throughout the year and there’s lifeguard cover during the summer. Unfortunately the closest toilets are at Constantine Bay.
The easiest way to reach Booby’s Bay is to walk from Constantine when the tide goes out as if you walk along the coast path you’ll need to scramble over rocks to reach the beach. If you’re steady on your feet this actually give your arrival at the bay a sense of adventure, so don’t be deterred.
