Newquay, a spunky town where surfers thrive, transforms during the summer into a bustling mass of holiday-goers. While the city has had problems with underage drinking in the past, it is working closely with law enforcement and locals to straighten up and make it more difficult for younger teens to participate in dangerous drinking activities.
There is a lot to do within the city itself -- surfing, swimming, and scuba for the water-eager, as well as plenty of shops and beaches and arcades and bars for the water-weary. At night, the party life is vibrant and relaxed (except for the occasional stag or hen party that walks by) and there are plenty of different venues for everyone. Surfing is a popular culture here, and everyone is welcome, from beginners to the old-timers. There are no cliques or elite crowds among the surfers -- everyone swims together and then hangs out together at night. It is not difficult to mingle with the locals.
If you get tired of the sand and surf and wish to do some sightseeing, there are several attractions in Cornwall that are accessible by train, bus, or car. Head down south to Lands End and Penzance and see St. Michaels Mount or St. Ives for the day. Inland, you can go see the Eden Project, which boasts huge greenhouses, which each take at least forty-five minutes to walk through -- they offer a discount on your ticket if you arrive by bus!). Or head up north to Tintagel and see the famous ruins of a castle associated with King Arthur on the cliffside. And don't forget to check out the puffins if they're around. While you are staying at a Newquay hostel, you will never run out of things to do!

Newquay Travel Tips & Suggestions
Newquay is a brilliant weekend away and good fun can be had. The hostels here are not up to scratch, however! They are poorly run and the standards are very low. If you do hostel it, do your research.
I like Newquay!
I love Newquay -- my brother lives there so go down when I can. It's so lovely, the people are nice, even better nightlife, and it's cheap. I would recommend it.
I went down there last summer, I went swimming with my friend and he fell in the water -- it was funny. I will be going again because I want do a fossil hunt with my granny.
— Grani Fani aka James C Mowat
I first went when I turned sixteen with a group of mates and then again this year for the summer again with a few mates. Surfing, drinking, chilling, and the magic bus shop is a must to visit! I just got back about three weeks ago and I'm already booked to go back in October. The nightlife is awesome and the people are so laid back. Overall, just amazing.
— Paul Cook
Newquay rocks -- I went down for a few days last week.
I absolutely love Newquay. I've been going for five years now every summer. I i just wish I could get down there more often. My boyfriend loves the bodyboarding and I love the shops and beaches. Well worth visiting if you're up for a laugh and/or relaxing holiday.
Full of pikey, scally types and the ropiest chats iIve ever come across! Other than that there is a supermarket and nice beaches in both directions. Just stick to chatting with the locals and steer well clear of the sub-human northerners who tend to populate the place in summer.
Been and its not very good. There are no gardens for me to plant plants in. I was not very happy, and I felt the food was not healthy enough for my liking. I feel I should stick to my studying back home.
Been to Newquay tons of time... best place in the UK by far. Just got back yesterday, going again in a months time :D
Man Newquay is just quality. I went down last year for about 5 weeks just skating surfin and drinking. Goin again this year for 2 months just saving the pennies at the mo...
I've been coming to Cornwall simce I can remeber and Newquay is the best part of it! You've got the nightlife, the beaches, the sea, and it's really cheap!
I went to Newquay last year when I was 16 with some friends and it was fantastic! The night life was great and in the day you can surf or just chill on the beaches. It's cheap and the perfect place to get away from it all. But beware, a signal is not easy to get for mobile lovers.
