Families love Newquay because of the choice of accommodation and the great beaches. There are safe and gentle beaches to suit young toddlers or beaches with pounding surf for the experienced surfer.  Come to Newquay and learn to Surf, go Kayaking, sea fishing, coasteering, wind surfing, Kite surfing, seal watching, walk the coast path, enjoy the nightlife or just to relax and watch the world go by.

Come for a festival we have festivals of Surfing, Music, Folk and fish.  Visit the Zoo and see how much the kids just love the antics of the Meerkats and Penguins.  Take the land train around the town walk through the undersea world at Blue Reef.

A great base for exploring the rest of Cornwall visit the fishing villages of the south coast, thee rugged cliffs of the north coast see the landscape where Winston Graham based Poldark and where much of the TV series was filmed.  Go cycling along old mineral Tramways, walking over moors, watch seals play in the surf and peregrine falcons soar and stoop over cliffs.
