Newquay is a Beach or two..

Once a prosperous pilchard fishing village Newquay is now a thriving cornish sea-side resort and the capital of England's surfing population with 11 beaches stretching over seven miles of golden sand.

The town itsself is like any other sea-side resort with tacky tourist shops but go for a walk on the coast - especially over to Towan Head - and you will have stunning scenery and beaches galore.

Pros and Cons

    Sandy, loved your photos and descriptions of Newquay. Came up randomly on my virtual excursions. MMM. Cornish Pasties, especially steak and Stilton, my favorite. Cheers. Mart

    good observations there exept the Island is now owned by some lord or other who thinks he owns the town as well.

    Haven't been here for 20 years! It's changed a bit since I first stayed here in the 60's in my Aunt's shop in Fore Street! Great photos.

    Sabs needn't think I'm driving her to Cornwall! A ride down that slip in a boat would be a scary experience!
