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…

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.

We had a fantastic time at Sea Snug. The apartment is in a great location, just a few minutes walk to the beach. The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed and offers fantastic value for money. We would definitely book Sea Snug again should we holiday in Newquay

A lovely flat, perfect location for getting out and about. We will definitely be back!

Perfect getaway for 2 people. The bed is super comfy and we had the best nights sleep all week. Extremely clean and very well located. The apartment is around 20 mins walking distance to the zoo which was convenient and about 15/20 from the town centre. Would 100% recommend and would stay again.

Fantastic Apartment! You will not go wrong choosing to stay here. Comfortable furniture, well equipped kitchen with everything you should need. Side Sea view from balcony - sitting on the sofa you get an excellent view. Great parking space at rear of apartment. Lusty Glaze beach is just across the road and easily walk-able to. Definitely recommend Mawgan Porth beach a short drive away too. Thank you for a fantastic weeks holiday! We will be back :-)

Very comfortable and clean. Convenient for town centre and beaches.

We had a great week in Newquay, the apartment is in a fab location in a secure and quiet building and is a good size, plenty of space with a comfy bed and sofa. It's ideal for Lusty Glaze and Tolcarne beaches but also not far from the centre.

Unfortunately when we arrived the apartment hadn't been cleaned or prepared properly. It wasn't the best start to a holiday but Aspects were very good in sorting this out. The boiler also broke and again Aspects were amazing.

Personally we'll book a different Aspects property next time but our friends did stay here last month and had no issues.

Thank you to everyone at Aspects for all of your help, it's really appreciated :-)

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were so sorry for these issues. What happened with the cleaning is certainly not the norm at this property and for that housekeeper, so we can only apologise and reassure you that this was followed up, to avoid anything like that happening again. We were sorry to then hear of the issue with the boiler. Like in our own homes; things do break and go wrong sometimes, but we appreciate that this is far from ideal, especially when you are on holiday. This has not been an ongoing issue, just one of those unfortunate things, so should you change your mind and decide to return to this property, we would not expect a repeat of this. We were glad to be able to quickly get this addressed for you at the time and hope that you still had a fantastic break here in Newquay. Aspects Holidays, Customer Services

Great location fabulous accommodation very comfortable decorated to a high standard

Generally we had a very pleasant stay at the sea snug.The property was very clean and had lots of extras such as milk on arrival and the use of a body board and windbreaks. It would have been better for the family bathroom shower to be attached to the wall and more storage for guests in the small room as we struggled with this.

Thank you for your helpful suggestions. We will pass those on to the owner for their future consideration. We are glad that you liked it and hope to see you back in Cornwall again. Tanya, Customer Services

Perfect! A really lovely, clean, comfortable and very well equipped apartment. Lots to do and see all within walking distance. Plenty of beaches to explore and shops to browse in. Would highly recommend this apartment to families who like a bit of comfort while away from home. Iron, body board, wind break, hair dryer are all provided. Dishwasher and washer drier with a couple of washing tablets provided. Milk, tea and coffee are provided so you can grab a cuppa before you get some groceries in. Everything was lovely and clean - just what you want for a happy holiday. Would love to stay again!

Sea Snug is ideally located to explore the many surrounding beaches. Clean, Comfortable with a home from home feel, allocated parking and good wifi included at this property. We visited Sea Snug in 2019 and wanted to return again in 2021. We weren't disappointed, would recommend.

Had a pleasant stay, location slightly out of the way of the main town centre, which ended up being a nice change from our usual destination in Newquay. Only negative was a couple of derelict buildings near the apartments, that we hope will be renovated soon. Nice clean apartment, sea view from the lounge, if sitting on sofa. Great holiday!


Wonderful and cosy apartment. Would recommend a stay here and we would definitely return. Great base for anyone staying in Cornwall. Thumbs up!

We loved everything about this property. I must compliment Aspect on how clean it was when we arrived. Would definitely consider Sea Snug again.

The perfect position for the beach and town. Took elderly parents so the lift was a god send. Had tea and coffee available when we arrived and even fresh milk in the fridge which was very much appreciated after our long drive . The apartment has everything you could possibly need and there’s a a Tesco express 2 minute walk for essentials. Exceptionally clean. There’s all the cleaning products under the sink if you needed them. Dishwasher and washer/dryer. Definitely recommend the apartment to friends and family.

If you are visiting Newquay And want to surf every day then this is the apartment for you. Tolcarne beach Is a beautiful beach with cafe, restaurant, shop, toilets, and surf school opposite the apartment!

I would recommend Sea Snug without hesitation. A lovely, modern apartment in a great location that was very comfortable.

Great location and views of the sea were really lovely. The accommodation was clean, well equipped and we would recommend as an excellent location for the town and beaches.

The Sea Snug is a specious, well-maintained and clean property in a great Location. Well equipped and close to all amenities. A great base to explore the beaches, pubs, restaurants and attractions. We would definitely stay at the Sea Snug again as we had a great holiday.

Outstanding apartment in an excellent location - this apartment is in a picturesque, quiet area of Newquay yet is only a few minutes away from the beach or the town centre. It was immaculate and extremely well equipped. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come again.

Aspects holidays really looked after us after some issues with our booked accommodation that was totally outwith their control. Happy.

We loved our stay at Sea Snug, which was in a perfect location for exploring Newquay and Cornwall.

The apartment was gorgeous and the landlord even accommodated our 3 young children by providing a stairgate and Disney DVD's!

I would most definitely recommend Sea Snug to friends and family.
