Woman complains about large rock at a Cornish beach being 'hidden by the waves'


A woman has been ridiculed after complaining about the presence of a rock on a beach in Cornwall.

The beach-goer demanded action be taken to remove the 'hazard' that was 'hidden by the waves' and injured her.

Her review of Lusty Glaze beach in Newquay said, “something needed to be done” about the rock as it was “covered with beautiful waves and nobody can see it”.

It is a gorgeous place BUT there is a big rock in the middle part of the beach which is so dangerous.

I remember my jet ski instructor warned me about it a few years ago and I was there last week for a swim and I fell over it and badly injured my leg.

Something needs to be done about this rock as it is covered with beautiful waves and nobody can see it.”

The review, was posted online by the owners of Lusty Glaze.

A spokesperson for the owners said: "We recently received a post from a lady who sadly had hurt her leg on the rock in the middle of the beach.

“This sparked a lengthy discussion from our team about some of the comments we’ve received over the years - 'What time do the waves start?' 'When will the dolphins appear?' - and many, many more!

“Not sure what we can do about our little natural feature but we hope this lady gets well soon.”

A number of comments from unamused readers followed.

One person commented, “oh my goodness. Maybe you could put flashing lights on it or maybe a lighthouse.”

Another person said, "gotta say Lusty Glaze maybe you could be more sympathetic and help resolve possibly by covering the rock in bubble wrap and painting it a day glow colour."

Last month one visitor to Perranporth Beach complained that the sand was “too damp for building sandcastles.”
