Summer Family Holidays in Newquay – Our Top Picks
Fistral Beach is one of the most iconic coastlines in the country, but what makes Newquay so good for little nippers? We have a range of child-friendly facilities and loads of things to do with the whole family on site, but we’ve put this guide together for when you want to go exploring. Here are our top picks for family activities in Newquay:
Previously known as Buccaneer Bay, Pirate’s Quest is an immersive walk-through of Cornwall’s pirating history, perfect for kids and adults alike. The tour itself begins in a shipwreck and ends on the Captain’s Ship. Brace yourselves, it’s going to be a bumpy ride! P.s. don’t forget to use code EsplanadePQ when booking for 10% discount!
You’ll find the Blue Reef Aquarium on Towan Beach (6 mins from us – directions here). Get lost in the magic of a hidden underwater kingdom. From the giant pacific octopus to native sharks and everything in between, they have a fantastic array of displays and activities for the whole family.
Home to nearly 1,000 species of the world’s most rare and endangered animals, Newquay Zoo provides an exciting and educational day out for the whole family. Watch the lions feast, explore the zoo’s activity trails, and get up close and personal with some of the zoo’s cutest residents!
Ride the waves of the indoor pool, storm through slides, and experience the river rapid. The perfect answer to a hot summer’s day in Newquay, Oasis Fun Pool is home to a fantastic indoor pool and a huge outdoor pool to while away the hours splashing around with family.
Newquay and surfing go hand in hand. We’re so close to the epic Fistral Beach that we’d be crazy not to take advantage. Quiksilver Surf School Newquay is based at the south end of Fistral Beach where the waves are less crowded. Learn to ride the waves like a pro, perfect your technique, and most importantly have a whole lot of fun! For the surfing enthusiasts out there we also offer surfing breaks. Find out more here…
And that’s just a small slice of the action. Newquay is a truly incredible place to spend quality time with your family and you’ll certainly never be shy of things to do!
