The small village lies to the south of the River Gannel. The river also acts as the natural boundary between the parishes of Newquay and Crantock. The Gannel is tidal and a dangerous place to swim or wade. Ferries operate on a seasonal basis from Fern Pit to Crantock Beach. The village can be reached from the A3075 road via the junction at Trevemper.

Large parts of the parish are now in the ownership of the National Trust, including West Pentire headland which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and noted for its wild flowers and rare plants.
