Out and About
Surf-perfect waves and beautiful clean shores means that Newquay is at the epicentre of the UK’s surfing culture. There are 12 superb beaches (some of the best beaches in Cornwall!) within easy reach of The Esplanade Hotel, as well as many smaller hidden coves for you to discover. Every beach is different, and all are worth exploring.
From May to late October lifeguards patrol most of the beaches including Crantock, Fistral, Towan, Great Western, Tolcarne, Lusty Glaze, Porth and Watergate Bay. Take notice of the safety signs and be aware of strong rip currents. Always swim between the red and yellow flags and if you're learning to surf, stay between the black and white flags. For more information on beach safety, to give you peace of mind, our professional surf instructors at the Quiksilver Surf Centre will happily answer any queries you may have.
