Newquay is truly a wonderful town, its reputation as a great place for a night out, coupled with some of the finest beaches in England means Newquay attracts thousands of visitors each year. In the Town centre you first come to Towan beach,(about 3 mins from The Square House) next to the harbour. The most sheltered of beaches, this is a favourite with the families and those not wanting to walk too far. It is here that you find the famous landmark “The Island” which is connected to the mainland with its own suspension bridge..

Over the headland from Towan is by far the most famous beach in Cornwall "Fistral". At nearly a mile long, it is known for its excellent surfing and is largely responsible for Newquay’s current status as a popular resort. It is the venue for numerous national and international surfing events, with the most popular being the Ripcurl Boardmasters. If you have never surfed before this is most definitely the place to give it a go as there are plenty of surf schools to get you going.

The National Surfing Centre at Fistral has helped enhance Newquay and make it the UK’s surfing capital. Surf lessons are available by qualified instructors, who are Fully Accredited B.S.A. Surf Coaches and Qualified Beach Lifeguards. The B.S.A. surf school offers professional coaching for all abilities. With shops, a café and the stylish Fistral Blu Bar & Restaurant, the complex is popular with all ages.

Newquay’s reputation as a great palce for a night out, along with the nearby airport, brings people from all over the country to Newquay to party. Nowhere else in Cornwall will you find so many clubs, bars and restaurants packed into one place. Whatever your musical tastes there is something for everyone. Most clubs have regular theme nights and promotions and often attract big name DJ’s and bands. The biggest nightclubs such as Berties and Sailors offer the usual commercial tunes, but the Koola and Chy bar offer something a bit more underground.

If clubbing is not your thing, there are restaurants in Newquay to suit all tastes. Whether it is Indian, Mexican, Thai or Fish and chips you will find what you are looking for. There are bars by the sea, pubs in town, coffee shops, swimming, bowling and even a theatre in nearby lane.

Newquays popularity as a venue for events is growing, with an increasing number taking place on its beaches each year. The Ripcurl Boardmasters & K Festival features many major bands and this year saw Starsailor, Feeder & Athlete. Radio 1 also visits the town each year. Run to the Sun in May attracts thousands of VW fans and the annual Fish Festival held in the harbour provides 3 days of cookery demonstrations, crab pot making, live music, rock pooling and much more. Also you cannot forget the resident seals that live in the harbour!! Further afield you can also catch world class acts at the Eden Project for the Eden Sessions, last summer featured Lilly Allen, Basement Jaxx, Amy Winehouse & Jose Gonzalez.

For days out with children you can choose between swimming at waterworld, animal watching at Newquay Zoo, Dairyland farm world, Screech Owl Sanctuary or the Blue Reef Aquarium. Other attractions that are close by include Holywell Bay fun Park, Springfields and Crealy Adventure Park. Watersports are also available at Watergate Bay, a stunning beach with amazing views, which also has the added attraction of Jamie Olivers Fifteen Cornwall Restaurant…
