Bright sunshine greeted me for this winter re-visit. The tide was low, allowing beach access to neighbouring Tolcarne and Towan beaches. This is a great beach to look out from, the view taking in Newquay harbour and stretching round towards Trevose Head lighthouse. Weekending beach goers were enjoying a respite from the winter storms, which had left their destructive mark on these beaches and the buildings behind them.
What the beach means to Sophie.

It was a blustery morning at Great Western beach in Newquay for this re-visit. Bleary party-goers from the previous night wandered about the town, as I headed down to the beach, on the road behind the Great Western Hotel. The tide was out, allowing access to Lusty Glaze and Towan beaches from Great Western itself. The ebb tide created a familiar glistening effect on the sand.
