Bedruthan Steps

Visit Bedruthan Steps

A rugged sandy beach with rocky outcrops just eight miles from Newquay, Bedruthan Steps, is reached down the steep steps down to the beach that give it its’ name. At low tide sand is exposed, but it is too dangerous to swim and this beach. It is not suitable for wheel chairs or push chairs.

The sky at night on this part of the coast is spectacular and a popular star gazing spot. There are campsites in Magwan Porth about a half an hour walk away along the coast.
