Newquay Holidays Overview
Surrounded by some of the best beaches in England, Newquay can be found on the north coast of Cornwall, and has become known as the capital of Cornish surfing.

Newquay’s main attraction is the beaches, and Fistral, Great Western and Towan beaches are all close by. Those looking to learn to surf will be spoilt for choice with a wide range of surf schools offering everything from half day taster lessons to intensive week long courses.
