Newquay is a holiday resort on the north coast in Cornwall. Often referred to as "Cornwall's favorite holiday resort," Newquay has a range of stunning beaches and a superb coastline. Every beach is unique, and a tour of the beaches here comes highly recommended. Apart from the sun and sand, visitors will find plenty of activities like fishing and sea safaris, and family friendly attractions like zoos, aquariums and amusement parks. If you want to move around and enjoy everything the town has to offer, you will need to get a car for hire in Newquay.
You should start your tour at the tourist information center on Marcus Hill. Now you what to see and do, and hopefully you also have a car for rent in Newquay to take you around to all the attractions you plan to visit. You can start with nearby points of interest like the "Tunnels through Time" on St Michaels Road and the Blue Reef Aquariumon Towan Promenade. Do not miss the Newquay Zoo at Trenance Park or the Surf Rider Train on Bank Street. If you have children in tow, then you should also visit Holywell Bay Fun Park and Buccaneer Bay Newquay which offers an adventure with live pirates.
With so many wonderful options from Crantock Beach to Fistral, Lusty Glaze and Towan Beach, it would be hard to choose one to spend all your time in Newquay. Instead, head out for a tour of all 10 beaches, and enjoy different activities on each one. Fistral is famous for its surfing, Harbour Beach is a family-friendly one for little children, and Lusty Glaze is the popular one among tourists. Towan is right next to the quay, and also quite popular among visitors.
Given all the attractions and activities Newquay offers, one would think there would be no need to look outside the town. But there are towns nearby like Truro, Padstow, St.Agnes, Tregony and St. Austell, and they do have equally fascinating and enjoyable attractions. You can visit the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro, the many fine art galleries in Padstow, and the Lost Gardens of Heligan in St. Austell.
There are a whole bunch of depots at the Newquay Airport in St. Mawgan offering a car rental in Newquay for visitors, and some more on Quintrell Road and near the town center. To find the best deal from amongst all these agencies, use an online service to compare all the offerings, and book the one you like best right now, so that the vehicle will be waiting for you when you arrive for your stay here in Newquay.
