Let's go surfing

The Esplanade Hotel in Newquay is near Fistral Beach - one of the world's most famous surfing beaches. It's a great place for catching waves all year round. In fact, Newquay is known as Europe's surfing capital!

Ride the waves

It doesn't matter whether you've never surfed before, or you're a real pro; everybody loves Fistral Beach because its surf spots are ideal (however old you are!)

Learn on holiday

If you'd like to learn to surf whilst you're here on holiday, you can book lessons at the Quiksilver Surf School in Newquay. Our hotel is home to the surf school, all instructors are qualified beach lifeguards and BSA accredited too, so you'll be in safe hands! If you're new to surfing there's no need to worry, the guys at the surf school can help you choose the best surfboard for you and get you all kitted out. You can either join a lesson with other children, or with your family.
