Holidays in Newquay

No holiday in Cornwall at Hendra is complete without taking in the sights and sounds of the vibrant resort of Newquay, which is just a stone’s throw from our holiday park 
Newquay is a picturesque coastal town that really comes alive in the summer months, when the population swells considerably as people flock to see the beaches  and top attractions.
Hendra is located on the edge of Newquay – far enough away to escape all the hustle and bustle but close enough so that our guests can make the most of all the town’s amenities including the many shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Take a look below at our mini guide to holidays in Newquay, with details on all the top things to see and do…

Surfing in Newquay…

Surfing in Newquay has been going on for decades, but its popularity has escalated to an international sport! It is surfing that makes Newquay special and learning to surf is now one of the most popular activities while on holiday in Newquay. Newquay is home to some of the UK’s biggest Surf Festivals and probably the biggest and best is Boardmasters, which takes place in August.
Surfing events and competitions take place throughout the summer at Fistral, Watergate and Lusty Glaze beaches. Take to the waves yourself or watch the professional surfers in awe as they ride the waves at Fistral Beach!
