  • August is the best time for a beach holiday, when temperatures are high, Newquay's population multiplies and the city's many trendy restaurants, cafes, bars, and venues are humming with life.
  • June is ideal if you'd like to avoid the crowds, since the summer season is already kicking in but things are a bit more laid-back as the beaches are yet to be swarmed by school holiday crowds and summer residents.
  • October may not sound like the best time for a beach getaway, but it's almost the cheapest time to go to Newquay and, with the nights still relatively long, it's your last chance for a late (late) summer escape.
