Access through Crantock Village. Roads very narrow down to the car park - 1 car wide in places, so not easiest of access. Car Park small.
North: River Gannel's rivermouth so sandbanks are better. long hollow rights.
South: good S-SW winds protection and good with huge swells.

it aint too bad - i surfed this wave in the summer, isn't a bad wave, has good wind shelter, can be a strong rip on high tide near the rivermouth, i should imagine it gets good on big swells in the winter when its offshore, a little less crowed than newquay beaches and fistral, easy access aswel has parking right on the beach!
