Newquay is Cornwall's most popular and liveliest resort, with magnificent beaches and a major centre for surfing. Climbing up behind the beaches are high cliffs with exciting caves, the best is at Porth Island, Newquay's original settlement. Newquay has lots of interesting things for all ages to see and do. There is a Sea Life Centre, Golf Course, Zoo, and plentiful nightlife. The Atlantic comes to Newquay supercharged by the momentum of 3,000 uninterrupted miles. Small wonder surfers talk of the resort in the same breath as Bondi, Malibu and Waikiki. Beaches like Fistral and Watergate Bay are giant superbowls that could have been purpose-built to stage world championships. And they do. Because here wind, tide and water combine in that white-crested, rolling, roaring crescendo the pro's call the Perfect Wave. And if you ever get tired of surfing, there's kitesurfing, waveski and mountain boarding, too.
