From Discover Newquay
Ken Langmaid, a Newquay born resident wrote in the 1960's of this beach:
Tolcarne is privately owned and highly organised on business lines. What has Tolcarne got to offer? Safe access for pedestrians either by steps or by a sloping roadway; tier upon tier of lock up huts and beach tents with sunbathing platforms; cafe, shop, beach trays, surf board hire; a big beach of dry sand above high tide mark,; some moderately high cliffs with a cave or two; firm sand at low tide; and lastly of course the sea in all its glory. Tolcarne always used to strike me as being a fashionable beach and probably still is. It is extremely popular and deservedly so.
