Attraction Information

Fistral Beach is a surfer's paradise - with some of the best waves in the country! The beautiful sandy beach is west facing, long and backed by rocks and cliffs. A perfect beach for families, even if you're not all surfers!

You'll find a surf school and surf hire facility beachside, offering inexperienced 'foamies' super easy beginner boards, as well as the proper boards for those with more experience.  You can also hire boogie boards and stand up paddle boards. The facility is just 50 metres from the waters edge and open 363 days a year.
