A charming seaside town
The enchanting seaside town of Newquay in Cornwall has an almost fairy tale like feel. It sits on the beautiful east coast of England and offers visitors wonderful sunset views over the Celtic Sea. It has lovely sandy beaches to enjoy, as well as charming local culture and entertainment all year round.
The lovely town of Newquay is great to travel to all year round, but the best beach weather is from June to August, while the best weather for surfing is during September and October. At the end of May is the Run to the Sun Festival, which is VW festival with wonderful live music and DJs, and the second week of August witnesses the sailing regatta, which is a nice sight to behold.
