EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NEWQUAY'S CLIMATE

Being on the south coast of England, Newquay is one of the sunnier spots in the country. July has the warmest temperatures (average highs of 25 degrees) however for those who care more about how warm the sea will be, August is the month to head down. Autumn can be the best time to get your surf on in Newquay as the water is still warm and summer prices have dropped. By December the winter chill will really start to kick in and hang around until late March.

Survival Tips

  • 1

    Don’t rule out the off season Remember - Newquay is a great place to visit in the off season (Nov-March) too as the beaches and waves are quiet and the water temperature is bearable. In fact, swells (aka waves) are best from late autumn through to the winter, the best time to surf in Newquay.

    Check out the quieter stretches During peak season (summer), the beaches can get quite busy. If you want to find a quiet spot to sunbathe or read a book, head to:
    Newquay Harbor Wall, Tolcarne, Crantock, Whipsiderry

    Eat a pasty or you’re not doing Newquay right You can’t come to Cornwall and not try an authentic Cornish pasty (thick savoury pastry traditionally stuffed with beef, potato and onion). We recommend heading to the award-winning Morris Pasties for your fix.
