About Newquay

Grab a board and catch the waves!

The surf capital of England, Newquay looks like a cross between a sleepy English hamlet and a California beach – complete with bronzed surfers and ten long sandy beaches. The town has reinvented itself recently to match its hide-tide reputation, developing a lively nightlife and a throng of incredible restaurants.

There’s a fine selection of hotels in the Cornish town of Newquay. Many have sweeping coastal views, including the boutique Lewinnick Lodge (Pentire Headland), which is perched on a cliff in a breathtaking location, and the very comfortable Atlantic Hotel Newquay (Dane Road).There are also some excellent lower-budget choices, such as Tregarthen (1 Arundel Way), a guest house that has chic rooms that come with iPod docks and flatscreen TVs, or the bright and breezy Surfside Stop (35 Mountwise), which likewise has designer looks, a great location, flatscreen TVs, DVD and CD players.

The pedestrianised nature of Newquay makes it ideal for exploring on foot. The centre houses a variety of shops that vary from the usual suspects to quirkier small businesses and surf specialists. Newquay is one of the best places around to get yourself a new board from someone who knows their stuff, along with all the latest gear. Boardwalk Surf (17 Cliff Road), Emoceanl Surf (2-4 Gover Lane) and the Watershed (3-5 Bank Street) will all look after you.

The Cornish pasty is of course the flagship of the Newquay cuisine, along with clotted cream tea, which can be sampled at the Coast Café (54 Fore Street), or for something a little more substantial try the Beached Lamb Cafe (72-74 Fore Street). International cuisines such as Chinese, Indian, Mexican and Thai thrive in Newquay, while Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall restaurant (Watergate Bay) is close to town.
