Sun, surf and seaside

Newquay is one of the most popular resort towns in Cornwall thanks to its sunny climate, long, sandy beaches and lively nightlife. The town also has a reputation for being a surfer's paradise and, thanks to the high quality of the waves, many international competitions take place at Fistral Beach. 

Best Newquay travel time

Although tourist numbers are highest during the busy summer season, there is plenty to do in Newquay all-year-round, no matter what the weather is doing. Beach lovers should visit during June, July or August when the sun is at its hottest. The best surfing weather occurs during September and October. Popular events include the Run to the Sun custom car and music festival which takes place at the end of May and the Falmouth Week sailing regatta which runs during the second week of August.
