Things to do in Newquay

Home to Fistral Beach, often dubbed as “The Home of British Surfing”, Newquay is one of Cornwall’s most popular beach spots and a draw to surfers from around the world.

As sheltered Newquay receives the full warming effect of the Gulf Stream, you’ll see palm trees in many of its parks. There’s always fresh fish on the menu but, if you’re after comfort food, don’t forget to pick up a pasty or sit down to a full cream tea. Newquay and the surrounding area boasts 15 sandy beaches, so don’t forget to pack your flip-flops and slap on the sun cream.

Trenance Gardens

Nestled in a sheltered valley, Trenance Gardens are Cornwall’s version of a subtropical paradise. In the spring and summer, vibrant flowerbeds provide a riot of colour. Even if yours is a winter visit, The Garden at Trenance Cottages is a great spot for delicious traditional cream teas.

If you want to sail somewhere a little calmer than the Atlantic Ocean, you can also take to Newquay Boating Lake in a rowing boat or pedalo. 

Newquay Harbour

Visit the historic harbour which gave the town its name. While fishermen still come and go, you can try and catch your own supper on one of the several fishing trips available. There are also sea safari trips to spot dolphins, seals and – if you’re very lucky – massive basking sharks.

The harbour hosts events throughout the year, from the Newquay Fish Festival to Newquay Harbour Sports Day – where speedboats and jet skis take to the water to make some waves.

Fistral Beach

With its coastal location and status as surfer’s favourite, Newquay has no shortage of beaches to check out. The self-styled “Home of British Surfing”, Fistral Beach has a surf centre hiring boards and wetsuits, while there’s also a large expanse of clean beach for those who’d rather just sit and watch.

Get yourself decked out in surfer chic at Fat Face or grab a bite at one of the several eateries on hand – including Rick Stein’s Fistral. As it’s Cornwall, they also have an obligatory but delicious pasty shack.

The Japanese Garden

Reach a new level of Zen amongst the cultivated Bonsai and verdant moss gardens of Newquay’s Japanese Garden.

Stone Buddhas meditate to the sound of wind chimes while large coy carp swim languidly in the tranquil ponds. Just keep reminding yourself that you’re actually still in Cornwall.

You can also pick up some lanterns and Bonsai in the shop, meaning you can take a little bit of calm with you.
