Newquay holidays provide something very different to many of the sleepy villages that dot the Cornish coast. Located on the North Cornwall coast and renowned for its surfing, thousands of tourists flock to Newquay every year to enjoy the sun, sea and sand. In fact, the surfing in Newquay is thought to be so good that it is the annual host of the National Championships, which every year sees some of the best surfers in the world arrive in August to battle it out for the title.
If you want activity and adventure on your holiday, Newquay is the place to be, with plenty of sandy beaches and exciting nightlife, it can provide the perfect getaway for both families groups and single travellers, whatever your holiday needs may be.

With its fashionable appeal, alongside its laid back charm, Newquay is a great location for those that enjoy having plenty of options during a holiday. The colourful town boasts an abundance of surf shops, trendy bars, exciting festivals and great places to eat.
For example, if you don’t fancy fish and chips on the beach you could head to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen at Watergate Bay and enjoy some ‘pukka’ dishes overlooking the sea. Some celebrity sparkle always adds a dash of extra fun on holiday.
