Chances are you’ve heard of Newquay. It’s Cornwall’s best-known tourist town, a place alive in the summer with parties, clubs, and teens and twentysomethings. It’s also the UK’s surf capital, where international surfers battle it out on Fistral Beach every year in the country’s only top-rated surf championships.
The beach is the big draw no matter who you are and it’s a great place to spend time on a family holiday, building sandcastles or playing ankle-deep in the sea. Other attractions include a zoo, an aquarium and a swimming pool.
