Why You Should Visit Newquay
Known as the surfing paradise of the UK, Newquay’s main draw is its many beautiful beaches and stretches of coastline, but this coastal getaway offers much more with its charming cafés, pubs and family-friendly attractions. The most popular beach in the region is Fistral Beach which even hosts surfing competitions during the summer, while there are also plenty of smaller and quieter beaches dotted around the area if you would rather enjoy some serenity. Other than surfing there are a number of ways to stay fit and active during your trip including taking a walk along the stunning coastline, while there are many fun things to do for kids such as swimming, mini golf and funfair rides.
