Welcome to Newquay

If you’re looking for the perfect surf spot, get yourself to Newquay. This small town on the north coast of Cornwall is the perfect retreat, known for its beautiful British seaside attracting surfers from all over the world. 

Boasting bountiful beaches and rockin’ waves, escape the big city and experience the true beauty of England's sandy coast. From Cornish pasties and seaside fish n’ chips to buzzing bars and an epic nightlife, Newquay is one of our favourite places in the UK. Check out our Newquay Hub for everything you need to know about the charming coastal town… 

  • Take some surf lessons with our friends at the Escape Surf School. You can arrange lessons at the hostel reception

  • You can drive, train or fly to Newquay - whatever you choose to do, you probably won’t need to use any public transport again until you leave as most places are walkable

  • Be safe when swimming in the sea. Pay attention to weather warnings, high tides and watch out for any rocky surfaces

  • Explore quieter stretches of beach during the peak season (Newquay Harbor Wall, Tolcarne, Crantock, Whipsiderry)

  • Don’t rule out the off season. The beaches are quieter and the waves during autumn-winter are perfect for a surf. Just make sure you wear a wetsuit to keep warm.
