Newquay, the centre of Cornwall's surf scene, makes for the perfect seaside weekend break. Fistral beach is the most popular with surfers, so struggle into your wetsuit and have a bash at riding the waves! Then relax in a beachside cafe with a warming coffee or cocktail. If getting wet isn't your style, watch others having fun from the beach as you feel the sand squidge between your toes. The narrow streets of the town centre are packed with bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. Local seafood is a speciality, and what could be better after a long day at the beach than a traditional fish and chips all washed down with a pint of local ale? A traditional Cornish pasty or cream tea is also not to be missed. Newquay's laid-back atmosphere is infectious; after just a few hours the daily grind will all feel a long way away and you'll be ready to plan your next city break to Cornwall's wild and tumultuous coast.
