Newquay is unquestionably Britain’s surfing capital with national and international competitions attracting athletes and spectators throughout the year. But it is also a popular, lively resort area with miles of fine beaches, calm coves and cliff-top walks where you can have a go at spotting Cornish dolphin.
There is something here for everyone, irrespective of the weather. Play pitch and putt near Marcus Hill or head out to the Trenance Gardens. From the harbour you can take short cruises and buy freshly-caught shellfish or make the most of the pleasure area and watch all the activity. Newquay has developed its own unique culture and offers an exciting holiday, with its fashionable bars, clubs, cafés and restaurants as well as first-class indoor attractions such as the Aquarium, Cornwall Pearl, National Maritime Museum, or the Eden Project.
From safe sandy beaches ideal for children to the hectic thrills of the roaring breakers, you are sure to find the perfect spot for yourself on one of Newquay’s fourteen beaches. And with walking, cycling, horseback riding, bowling, tennis, fishing, kite surfing, wakeboarding, diving, power kiting or abseiling, plus a host of indoor and outdoor attractions all in the surrounding area, it really is impossible to be bored here.
