Welcoming family beach resort

Newquay is a popular resort and fishing port on the coast of Cornwall. The seaside town's surfing beaches, fun parks and restaurants all attract families seeking a relaxing break. 


All year Newquay

Although visitors head for Newquay all through the year, the most popular time for beach holidays is between June and August. However, prime surfing weather comes slightly later, in September and October. Major events include Run to the Sun in late May, a VW festival featuring DJs and live music, and Falmouth Week, a sailing regatta in the second week of August. 


Tips before setting off

After arriving at Newquay Airport, you can local buses to the town centre bus station, with a ticket price of around £3 for a 25-minute ride. If you prefer to take a taxi, this could cost from £15 for a 15-minute journey. However, there is no taxi rank at the airport, so it is necessary to book in advance. Everyone over the age of 16 leaving from the airport is expected to pay an Airport Development Fee of about £5. The West Country is famous for its food, and Cornish pasties aren't the only celebrated delicacy from the area. Visitors will also enjoy tucking into cream teas, fudge and fresh seafood. 


Where to stay and how to get around

Staying in a hotel in Newquay could cost from around £40 a night per person. Hostels are cheaper, starting at around £10, which may or may not include breakfast. It is easy to explore the town on foot, but there are also bus links to neighbouring towns and villages. A one-day travelcard for the area costs around £10 for an adult.
