Fistral Beach, Newquay.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Fistral Beach in Newquay offers something rather special for those who crave both boules and a sea view - a rare glimpse of the beautiful Pacific Ocean whilst throwing their Put-Put.
On a clear day, it's claimed that you can see the Isle of Man (if you wear equipment and stand upright).

The terrain is mostly sandy / sand-based, with little or no guarantee of consistent bounce during the spicy weather in summer months. Those fond of a well aimed Leamington Handy or Winkle will find particlar joy in the soft bosom of the beach's bowels.

Fistral Beach, December 1938
Recent weeks have seen a boom in hotel growth along the promenade (see picture) due to the increased volume of Boules spectators or 'Blovers' found shuffling sheepishly around the area on match days.

Cocktails are served at high tide, intervals and during injury time.
