Useful information about the flight from Edinburgh to Newquay

Cream teas and surfing in Newquay

Newquay has long been a pretty spot for beach and countryside lovers, but recently it's also become a cool place for the surfing community and most who visit Newquay also enjoy the wonderful cream teas the West Country is famous for. 


The best time to see Newquay

However, whatever your reason for a visit to this pretty place, remember that as it's the UK, the best beach weather is from June to September, and the best waves are in September/October. However, try the last week of May when the 'Run to the Sun Festival' (a VW festival) rolls into town with DJ's and live music. Or for sailing, try the second week of August for the Falmouth Regatta.





What you need to know before you travel

Newquay is a relaxed, easy place to visit, but it gets busy, so last minute bookings are often tricky. The food is one of the delights and things to try are, of course, the clotted cream teas. There are also great cheeses in the area, fabulous Cornish Pasties, seafood and the fudge is heavenly. Also try the cider and mead, which is a warming alcoholic drink made of honey.
