Top 5 Half Term Must Dos!
Once you’ve settled in, found your feet (and where the bar is…) it’s then time to plan your holiday. If like most families, you haven’t really done the most research on what you’re going to get up to during the May half term then don’t panic, we’ve got the low-down on what to do with the family during your stay this half term in Newquay…
With the beach on our doorstep, literally, let the little nippers feel the golden sands beneath their feet of the famous Fistral Beach and explore the nooks and crannies of Cornwall’s coast with a low tide rock pool adventure. Head down to the local supermarket in the morning and pack up a tasty box of goodies to form a family picnic, mark your territory with your beach towel and soak up the heavenly surroundings that is Fistral Beach for the day. There’s nothing better than a sandy sandwich now is there…?!
A trip to Newquay isn’t complete without having at least a go at the famous sport now is it? Our friends next door at Quiksilver Surf School have all the gear and the right idea when it comes to family surf lessons in Newquay. (They’ve even got warm showers and changing rooms. Heaven!) Take the plunge and head for the blue with their fully qualified instructors as you head into the white waves of Fistral – a perfect way to make some memories whilst simply having fun!

Just a short drive, or leisurely stroll if you fancy it, tucked away near Trenance Gardens you can find the king of the jungles home, Newquay Zoo. From penguins to meerkats, creepy crawlies to pandas, get up close and personal to your favourite furry friend and explore a world full of animals. Enjoy face painting, activity trails, play areas, as well as getting lost in the Dragon maze – this popular attraction is definitely one not to be missed! Take a look at what they have to offer here.
During the half term, join us here at The Esplanade Hotel to enjoy a jam-packed schedule of family fun activities, and what’s even better – they are all FREE to our guests! Start your holidays with the chance to have your own Pebbles with our build-my-bear session before the delicious biscuit decorating commences! Try your hand at table tennis or show off your skills at the football competition, you can even throw some shapes in the evening at the glow in the dark silent disco before a cup of hot chocolate before bed! Take a look at the full schedule here.
One for the Mums…
Relax and enjoy some much deserved ‘me’ time whilst the little nippers are splashing about in the kid’s pool with Dad at our sister hotel, the Fistral Beach Hotel and Spa. Head to the adult-only pool to sink into the hot tub and steam up in the sauna before heading up to the relaxation room to slip into a state of pure relaxation. Take a little time to catch up on the latest fashions from the vast array of magazines, whilst sipping a herbal tea and munching on the dried fruit and nuts provided before a little pampering with an indulgent ESPA treatment, and don’t forget hotel guests get 10% discount on treatments… Find out more here.
