Newquay - Surf Capital of the UK

It's no exaggeration either, Newquay has been at the heart of UK surfing for over 40 years and Newquay is the perfect place to get into the waves. From beginners to pro's to veterans there's a suitable break on a beach in Newquay, and to back you up Newquay boasts the best range of surf shops, schools and board manufacturers in the Country.

At the centre of Newquay's surfing status is Fistral Beach which has a reputation as one of the best beach breaks in the Country. Fistral is capable of producing powerful, hollow waves and holding a good sized swell. Lusty Glaze, Towan, Great Western and Tolcarne beaches nearer the town and nearby Crantock and Watergate Bay also provide high quality surf waves.

The really great thing about Newquay is the surf culture, including the schools and adventure centres. Very often run by home grown experts who love the beach, love the surf and love sharing it.

And you'll be in safe hands. Some of the UK’s top coaches and instructors work in the activity and experience centres across Newquay Bay making sure you enjoy every minute of the fun! To find your perfect Newquay surfing experience browse the listings below or call in or contact Newquay Tourist Information Centre.
