We all absolutely loved 8 Saltwater. The view was amazing!!! The apartment was beautiful, and very equipped. We felt at home, at ease and enjoyed every minute of our short break. If only it was available for longer, we would have booked in to stay. Definitely will be coming back, we now have holiday blues. Oh and a beautiful location to watch the sunset from the balcony. Definitely would recommend taking a walk down to fistral beach from the apartment.

Holidays in Newquay

Holidays in Newquay are all about stunning scenery, beaches, and, of course, waves. As it’s the surf capital of the UK, you’ll find an abundance of surf shops and schools allowing you to immerse yourself in the surfing culture from the moment you arrive, whether you just want to watch or get stuck in.

However, if surfing isn’t for you, there are plenty of ways to fill the days while staying in the stunning beachside town of Newquay. Head to one of the many beaches for a family day on the sand - picture rock pooling, picnics, and sandy toes! Or, if you fancy a bit of retail therapy, the bustling town has a selection of independent shops selling an array of goods including clothes, artwork, and delightful handmade treats – not to mention a mouth-watering selection of cafés, bars, and restaurants for a mid-shopping or post-beach refuel.

Newquay also has a selection of attractions and events, perfect for the kids (and big kids) from a wild and wonderful zoo to a round of golf by the sea. There are also some great walks in the area thanks to the beautiful South West Coast Path, perfect for a dog-friendly Cornish getaway.

Did you know...

Newquay has nine sandy beaches to choose from!

Beaches in Newquay

When staying at a holiday cottage in Newquay, you won’t be short of aquatic adventures, with lots of sandy beaches on your doorstep. All of Newquay’s beaches are lifeguarded in the summer, providing a safe place to spend the day soaking up the sun. 

Fistral beach – What do you call the best beach for surfing in the UK? Fistral! With the most consistent surfing in the country and great swathes of golden sand, there’s little doubt as to why surfers flock here from all over the place. You’ll find a surf school and wetsuit hire for those wanting to travel light and it’s dog friendly all year round for those travelling with furry companions.

Watergate Bay – Second on Newquay’s surfing scoreboard, Watergate Bay offers a seriously spacious alternative to Fistral whether you fancy a surf, a stroll or a hot chocolate in the beachside café.

Crantock beach – If you prefer a quieter beach backed by sand dunes then Crantock beach won’t disappoint. Dog-friendly and perfectly sheltered on the southern end, this sandy haven is popular with families and anyone looking for a place to doze in the sand.

Newquay Towan – Right in the centre of the town, Newquay Towan is great for quick dips and sandy escapes while you explore the surrounding shops, attractions, and perhaps even a bar or two!

Great Western, Porth, Whipsiderry, Tolcarne, Lusty Glaze, and Mawgan Porth are also fantastic beaches in Newquay. Read all about them in our extended guide and discover your favourite!

Things to do in Newquay

With quick access to the rugged north Cornish coast and some fun-fuelled attractions and activities, there are lots of great things to do in Newquay.

Surfing & Watersports

Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, the beaches of Newquay offer something for every ability, weather forecast, and tide. And it’s not just surfing on offer either. Bring your own seafaring devices or hire kayaks and paddleboards from one of the many rental shops around.


With such an abundance of attractions in and around Newquay, it’s the perfect place for a family holiday at any time of year. Newquay Zoo offers a great day out, as do the nearby Screech Owl Sanctuary and the Blue Reef Aquarium. For those who love animals and theme park rides, Dairyland Farm Park is the place to be while Trerice Manor House offers a beautiful walk through history.

If you fancy something a bit different, fishing trips and sea safaris are available, from which you can take in the scenery from a different angle. You may even be lucky enough to catch a sight of seals and dolphins!

Newquay Golf Club overlooks Fistral beach and is regarded as one of the best golf courses in the county, providing a different challenge every day depending on the weather, all with incredible sea views.


From beach supplies to holiday mementoes, Newquay’s streets are lined with lots of interesting shops from big names to independent favourites. Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of surf shops where you can fill up your beachy wardrobe including Married to the Sea, Boardwalk Surf Shop, Watershed, and Ann’s Cottage – some even have surfboards too so you can really kit yourself out. Razzmatazz is an eclectic mix of fun, holiday take-homes and Lucky Go Happy provides a lovely selection of ethical bits and bobs for the whole family.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, a trip to Roly’s Fudge Pantry or Cornish Cream will see it satisfied as you’ll find a fantastic array of Cornish chocolates, fudge, and even Cornish cream tea hampers (which make for the ultimate beachside picnic).


With the north Cornish coast right on your doorstep, it will come as little surprise that Newquay is jam-packed with incredible walks. Walk around Park Head (which you might recognise from Poldark) and Pentire Steps for some stunning coastal views or trudge along to Lappa Valley where you can swap the rippling blue of the sea for the dappled shade of the woods. You’ll also find a lovely area around the Porth Reservoir and surrounding wildlife reserve, giving wildlife watchers plenty of opportunities to whip the binoculars out.

Dining out

Newquay's vibrant foodie scene has grown and grown over the years, with the town now offering something for every taste and occasion. If you want to eat out, you’ll find a huge selection of eateries, including many beach cafés and restaurants serving up locally caught seafood with incredible sea views. Or, if you fancy something special after a day surfing the waves, check out the many fantastic fine dining options or cocktail bars for a relaxing drink.

If you want to stay in and make the most of your lovely home from home, there are some excellent farmshops and delis in the area, including the welcoming Trevilley Farm for all your locally-produced needs or Malcolm Barnecutt Bakery for some seriously moreish fresh bakes.

Dog-friendly Newquay

If you want to bring your four-legged friend with you on your Cornish holiday, you couldn’t pick a better spot than Newquay where you’ll find plenty of great dog walks.

Dog-friendly beaches

Fistral beach – Surf, sea, and sandy paws, it’s all waiting for you at Fistral beach 365 days a year.

Watergate Bay – With miles of sand and lots of rockpools and caves to sniff out at low tide, this dog-friendly beach is a favourite with dogs and humans alike.

Whipsiderry beach – Considered a hidden gem by many, dogs are welcome throughout the year on Whipsiderry so why not take a dog-nap in the sand before checking out those rock formations!

Mawgan Porth beach – with Bedruthan Steps a short walk away and lots of sand for zoomies, the beach at Mawgan Porth is great for tuckering out the pooch (and the kids).

You can also see these beaches from the water, as many of the boat trips in the area welcome seadogs aboard!

Dog-friendly pubs and restaurants

When it comes to dinner time, there are plenty of dog-friendly pubs, restaurants and cafés where the whole pack can shake the day off and refuel.

Lewinnick Lodge – Perfectly placed up on the cliffs on the Pentire Headland, Lewinnick Lodge offers sea views with your meal, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or evening drinks with the pooch by your side.

Lakeside Café – Another dreamy spot for a bite to eat, Lakeside Café not only provides delicious treats for its human guests but for its doggie guests too – homemade dog ice cream should get those tails wagging!

The Old Albion Inn – 400 years old with no signs of slowing down, The Old Albion has truly perfected its welcoming atmosphere. Enjoy the thatched roof as you enter and the fully-stocked bar when you’re inside.

What's on in Newquay

Whether you love music and surfing, beer or food, there’s a festival in Newquay for you…

Cornwall Street Food Festival

Hitting the cliffs in June, Cornwall’s inaugural Street Food Festival brings cuisines from all over the world together as people celebrate great food and great views.


This surf and music festival seems to get bigger every year as thousands descend on Newquay's Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay to watch surf competitions and live music while sampling all that Newquay has to offer.

Newquay Beer Festival

Sample over 50 ales and enjoy live music as you make the most of Newquay’s one and only beer festival, which takes over Hendra Holiday Park every September.

This apartment is everything you could wish for to make your holiday special. Wonderful views of Fistral beach looking out towards the Headland hotel from the main balcony. For that early morning cup of tea sitting on the balcony leading from the bedrooms was a bonus. The location is good for lovely walks - the beach is about 15 minutes. For good food, friendly staff and fabulous views the Lewinnick Lodge Pentire Head which is about a 20 minute stroll is really worth a visit as is the Fern Pit Cafe which is on the way to Pentire Head. We would without doubt return to these apartments. Mrs Rainbird

8 Saltwater was very comfortable and the view over Fistral beach from the lounge & balcony was stunning. It was a lovely place to stay & very spacious. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Service from Aspects was outstanding & we particularly appreciated the call to say the apartment was ready early on arrival day. We are also very grateful to the lovely lady in the office who came out with the key on a Saturday night when my husband accidentally locked us out of the apartment.

Loved the property so much The location of the appartment is perfect as it's quiet, but a short walk gets you to Fistral and then into the centre of newquay which worked perfectly for us. The views and facilities are incredible with the owners thinking of everything and more. We loved the option of the 2 balconys which we utilised every day.

Absolutely loved this apartment, location, amenities, absolutely everything was perfect We will most definitely be looking to book again........ .Aspects holidays Thankyou :)

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at 8 Saltwater.

Lovely comfortable apartment with fabulous sea views over Fistral beach.

The kitchen was slick and modern, and full equipped with every kitchen essential you would need.

The apartment was very clean on arrival, the perfect home from home with amazing views We enjoyed the fact it has balconies, the one at the front overlooking Pentire, and 1 at the back overlooing Fistral Bay as far as Porth which was great views and time of the day.

Location is great for us but it is about 20 minutes walk to the nearest convenience store and Fistral Beach Bars, and the Town is about 25-30 Minutes.

We struggled a little with the tight parking space, we found it best to come from the rear of the building and it was very dissapointing that the parking space completley blocks the 'dropped kerb' access for wheel chair users, pushchair users, or any persons requiring assistance. I was very conscious about this point throughout, It was not well placed at all!!

Wouldn’t hesitate to stay in this appartment again, it really was fab.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thanks for your review. It certainly sounds like you had a fantastic time and the apartment worked really well for you. The parking space is like your typical supermarket space in terms of size, but due to its location may require a little manoeuvring to get into, and whilst it is to the front of the apartments, it is like you said, slightly easier to approach from the rear. Whilst we advertise the Saltwater properties to be accessible, this term covers properties that range from being suitable for those with slightly limited mobility to those who rely on a wheelchair, so we always advise to speak to the team before booking if accessibility is an important consideration. For the Saltwater properties we highlight that there is a step from the parking area so that guests should be immediately aware that it is not completely level access. It would however be a great improvement if there was a separate dropped curb away from the parking space, that gave much better access for those with pushchairs or wheelchairs, so we have passed on your comments to the management company who are responsible for the exterior areas. Thanks for the helpful feedback and we hope to see you back. Tanya, Customer Services

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Saltwater, a real home from home. We were wowed by the views in the living room, stunning views of Fistral Beach.
Very well furnished comfortable lounge, diner/kitchen, everything you need for a self catering holiday. Spotlessly clean. Bedrooms were great, both have lovely en suites plus a separate toilet next to the lounge, very convenient. We loved the two balconies, the one at the front is quite shady, which was great as the weather was very hot during our stay. The front balcony overlooking the road gets more sun. Location is great but it is about 20 minutes walk to the nearest convenience store. We struggled a little with the tight parking space but we do have a large car. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again if in Newquay.

Had a wonderful holiday, at the beautiful 8 Saltwater apartment. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone who intends to visit Newquay.

Be prepared to be wowed by the views from no. 8 Saltwater of Fistral beach and the surfers.The flat itself fully lived up to, indeed exceeded expectations in all aspects. would book this apartment again.

Lovely comfortable apartment with fabulous sea views over Fistral beach. The kitchen had modern appliances with every kitchen essential you would need. The apartment was very clean on arrival. We would not hesitate to return.

Perfect, loved the view every morning with a cuppa on the balcony. The owners have thought about everything. Booked up again for next year.

This is a fantastic apartment in great location, the views are amazing and the facilities exceeded our expectations.

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at 8 Saltwater. The perfect home from home with amazing fact we didn’t want to leave and ended up booking an extra night! The photos on the website do not do it justice. Great location, luxury apartment, beautiful view of Fistral Beach which is in easy walking distance on the coastal path. All topped off by a nice welcome bottle of bubbly. The owners couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating so thank you and thank you Aspects for a wonderful holiday. We will be back.
