What to do on holiday in Newquay
As well as spectacular coastal views, Newquay boasts 7 miles of golden beaches.
The most famous is Fistral Beach, which is popular with surfers of all abilities who flock there in the summer to try and catch the best waves.
There are plenty of other water sports to try too, including coasteering, swimming and kayaking.
High up on wild and beautiful Bodmin Moor sits Jamaica Inn — Cornwall’s most famous smuggling inn, which has welcomed weary travellers crossing Bodmin Moor for nearly 300 years.
Enjoy the award-winning restaurant; sample local ales and wines; purchase fresh produce in the farm shop, and explore the Smuggler’s Museum.
Lusty Glaze is a privately-owned cove nestled on the north Cornish coast. As well as hosting live music events throughout the summer, it is a hidden gem, perfect for swimming, strolling or sandcastle-building.
It’s also home to the beach bar and restaurant, serving delicious food all year round.
Family friendly activities in Newquay
If you are after an action packed family day out, Retallack Aqua Park is only a few miles from Newquay and takes its watery fun to a whole new level.
Tackle the Total Wipeout-style aqua park, cause mayhem in a zorb, show off your wakeboarding skills or see if you can withstand the Flow Rider.
On a rainy day, the Blue Reef Aquarium is full of wonder and intrigue. Discover a variety of underwater creatures in over 40 naturally-themed habitats, from the Cornish coast to exotic seas.
Newquay Zoo is another firm family favourite. Go on a journey and get close to 1,000 of the world’s rarest and most endangered species. The zoo is surrounded by 13 acres of lush tropical gardens for you and the children to explore, making it a day well spent.
