Newquay and Cornwall are highly prized summertime destinations. If you can bear the crowds, you'll find breathtaking beaches and warm swimming conditions. To avoid these crowds, travel outside of school holidays, from March to June and September to October. Summer is also when university students tend to descend upon the town for its raucous bars and club scene. Although the swimming may not be favourable, winter is still an excellent time to visit, with attractions still open in the vicinity. Just beware that smaller villages may see reduced or closed services in the off-season. You'll find excellent events all year round too, including Boardmasters Surf and Music Festival in August.
Newquay is a youthful, party-oriented town which is perfect for groups of friends. Despite this party-hard image, you'll find plenty of trendy bistros and romantic waterfront eateries here too. Boutique and spa hotels make excellent romantic retreats for couples, while families will find many delightful activities in the area. There’s the well-regarded Newquay Zoo and Blue Reef Aquarium, as well as a number of child-friendly beaches to explore. There’s no escaping that Newquay is also one of the best spots in England to surf, with plenty of schools catering to couples, friends and families alike.
