As the unofficial surfing capital of Britain, Newquay is hardly Bondi Beach although there is a distinctly laid-back, even tropical feel to it when the sun is shining. Blessed with beckoning beaches from secluded coves and family beaches with amenities to the sunbathing, surfing hotspot Fistral Beach, Newquay has a glorious square metre of sand for everyone.
Newquay holidays by coach
As the place to head for a sun-fuelled holiday in Cornwall, Newquay's tourists are a mix of families, folk embracing retirement, surfer dudes, holidaying youths and bronzed posers. The town is lively with an array of thumping clubs and pubs, as well as cafes and quieter, more sophisticated eateries. In addition to excellent beaches and agreeable restaurants, the town's shops have got plenty to keep visitors happy on their coach tours to Newquay. While most shop windows sport surf attire, there is also a pleasant array of gift shops and intriguing side street stores to investigate. If you want to get away from the beach on your Newquay short break, stroll around Newquay Blue Reef Aquarium to admire local and exotic marine life from underwater walkways and displays.
