Welcome to Britain's most exciting surfing resort. This is one of Europe's top surfing destinations. Newquay is to Brits what Bondi Beach is to Australians. The whole town and culture in Newquay exists around the surfing.
Newquay is the most visited holiday destination in Cornwall. It is a great place for a family holiday, regardless of whether or not you are interested in surfing. The beaches are good, there is plenty to do, and its a fun place!
Newquay has a whole host of entertainment venues, good pubs, tea rooms, clubs, shopping, cafes and a range of hotels for every budget. The Blue Reef Aquarium with its sea life collection and Waterworld the all round family fun and entertainment centre are just two examples of what is available locally. Come rain or shine you shouldn't have chance to get bored in Newquay.
Newquay used to be a fishing village called Towan Blystra and known for its pilchard catches, a far cry from today's vibrant and bustling crowds of holidaymakers and surfers. There are seven miles of golden sands here with eleven beaches. It is one of the warmest places in Britain.
