About Newmarket

About Newquay

Newquay is a popular surfer's paradise on Cornwall's rugged northern coast, which is known for its numerous wide sandy beaches backed by massive cliffs. The town is located about halfway out on the South West Peninsula and easily accessed via train, bus, and the nearby Cornwall Airport. Newquay town is developed with hostels, hotels, holiday apartments, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, but it's also within easy reach of more secluded areas, like the Trevose Head Heritage Coast. There is a strong surfing culture in Newquay, and in town there are health-conscious restaurants, bars, and cafes specializing in vegetarian food and speciality cocktails with locally-sourced ingredients. Travelers can choose from a variety of water activities: there's a surfing school, places to rent paddleboards, and kite surfing is also popular here. Non-beach activities include a golf course, stately manors with gardens, tennis courts, an orchard where travelers can pick their own fruit, and a mini steam locomotive park for children. If you're looking for hotels in Newquay, Opodo is a great search tool with an easy-to-use interface and a wide variety of accommodation.

What to see in Newquay

Look for accommodation near one of the numerous beaches in the region. Each beach has its own personality, ranging from developed, popular, and energetic, to more secluded, natural and low-key. From north to south the beaches are Bedruthan Steps, Mawgan Porth, Watergate Bay, Porth, Lusty Glaze, Tolcarne Beach, Great Western Beach, Towan Beach, Fistral Beach, Crantock, and Holywell Bay. Bedruthan Steps is a natural heritage site with windswept geological formations. Mawgan Porth is situated at the mouth of River Menalhyl. For watersports like kite surfing, paddle boarding and windsurfing, check out Watergate Bay - a wide, sandy, crescent-shaped beach. And don't miss Fistral Beach, the most popular beach among surfers, where surfing competitions are often held. Head to Porth for something a little more off the beaten path. Tolcarne Beach is developed with many facilities. For a more alternative vibe, swing by Lusty Glaze, a serene cove with nightly music events called "Sundowner Sessions" held on the beach. Towan Beach has cliffs linked by a suspension bridge and a nice break for surfing, while both Holywell Bay and Crantock are rustic spots with sand dunes and few crowds.

There are also plenty of non-beach attractions in Newquay. Trerice is a 16th century Elizabethean manor, and Trenance Cottages is a museum where you can learn about local history, tour the gardens, and have lunch in the cafe. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway and conservation area has mini locomotives for children to ride. Skaters are spoilt for choice with two skateparks: Newquay Skatepark and Concrete Waves. Try the foodie scene in Newquay at Tom Thumb, with hand-crafted cocktails and vegetarian charcuterie boards, or other health-conscious restaurants like the Green Heart Cafe or Sprout Cafe. Use Opodo's map feature to find hotels in Newquay close to these attractions.
