Styled to be the surfing capital of Britain, Newquay has sandy beaches, exhilarating water sports, excellent coral reef and more. The Fistral Beach is Newquay’s most popular sandy turf noted for its recreational options like surfing and swimming. It also hosts many international surfing competitions in summer.
