The beautiful North Cornish coast is well known for its vast stretches of golden sand and perfect Atlantic swell, but arguably nowhere does beaches and surfing better than the popular seaside town of Newquay. Surrounded by miles and miles of spectacular beaches is it easy to see why this once small fishing village is now a thriving holiday destination. Backed by high cliffs and sand dunes, you will find Newquay’s largest and best-known surfing beach at Fistral Bay. Whether you are a surfing pro, or a beginner looking for a few lessons, this is the ideal spot to catch some waves. And with plenty of cafes and takeaways on the beach it is easy to grab a Cornish pasty or ice cream, or even indulge in a glass of wine and the catch of the day as you watch the action from afar.
If you fancy escaping the crowds at Fistral Beach head three miles up the coast to Watergate Bay. Thrill seekers can try their hand at kitesurfing whilst those wanting to keep their feet firmly on dry land can enjoy a family game of rounders or cricket. The two miles of golden sand should satisfy any budding sand castle fans and as the beach is dog friendly all year round your four-legged friends will love it here too. Alternatively head south to the National Trust owned beaches at Crantock or Holywell. Whilst still popular surfing spots you can also try your hand at snorkelling, canoeing or windsurfing. Or simply hide away in the dunes and enjoy a romantic picnic as you watch the sun go down.
At the end of the day you won’t be short of places to go for a drink or a bite to eat. From cosy pubs, cocktail bars and nightclubs, Newquay certainly has an active nightlife. Whilst a popular haunt for stag and hen dos you can also enjoy a meal at one of the seafront restaurants or a classic fish and chip take away on the beach.
Whilst Newquay might be an ideal venue for younger people it’s not all about surfing and sundowners. Walkers will be blown away by the stunning scenery along the coastal path and there are plenty of places to take a stroll in the surrounding countryside. If you are looking to soak up some history and culture you can while away an hour or two watching the fishermen at work in the harbour or visit the stately home at the National Trust’s Trerice Manor. Kids will love the Blue Reef Aquarium and Newquay Zoo whilst the wildlife, narrow-gauge railways, boating lake and nature trails at Lappa Valley are hard to beat for a traditional family day out.
It is easy to see why Newquay has become Cornwall’s most popular holiday resort. Whether you want to spend family bucket and spade days on the beach, experience the thrill of catching some waves, blow the cobwebs away on a cliff walk or enjoy the lively nightlife, there is plenty to keep everyone entertained here. From stylish beach side apartments to family friendly houses we have a variety of holiday cottages in Newquay to suit everyone.
