Newquay

4.2

Surf Capital of the UK

Known as the Surf Capital of the UK, Newquay is a vibrant city with youthful energy. The center of the country’s surf industry, Newquay attracts a hip young crowd of tourists, who come here to explore the city’s famous surf stores, board manufacturers, and rental shops. A major tourist destination for over a century, Newquay’s coastline features several long and easily accessible sandy beaches. The city’s relatively small population of about 20,000 permanent residents increases to nearly five times that number during the height of the season. Surf addicts and curious travelers from around the world throng the seaside pubs, bars, and clubs, giving the city the feel of a cosmopolitan European resort. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Newquay trip itinerary using our United Kingdom online visit planner.
