Visitors can enjoy a choice of five splendid beaches in the town. Lusty Glaze is a great family beach in a sheltered cove back by cliffs. Tolcarne Beach is suitable for swimming and gentle surfing for children and beginners and some splendid rock pools when the tide recedes. Great Western Beach comprises many small coves, best visited at low tide. Fistral Beach is one of the best surfing beaches in the UK, hosting many international surf competitions. Porth Beach is nicely sheltered by headlands on both sides and is accessed by a footbridge. The Harbour beach reveals itself at low tide and is a great suntrap. Seals can regularly be seen sporting in the water around the harbour.

Newquay is home to the great Cribbar, a rarely occurring enormous wave which the local surfers try their hand for ten seconds of fame as they try to surf this beast of a wave. There are also plenty of other water activities such as sailing and windsurfing, both of which have local qualified instructors and equipment to help you improve your skills.

At night, Newquay becomes a lively little place with a wonderful array of bars and pubs offering great nights out in and amongst the ‘beachy’ atmosphere.
