Newquay attractions

CornwallFrom Newquay you can explore both the north and south coasts of Cornwall in this narrow neck of land stretching down to Land's End. Cornwall is warmed by the Gulf Stream and the coastline is battered by the Atlantic ocean. Fishing ports, little harbours, seaside resorts at Newquay, Falmouth and St Ives and the craggy coastline give Cornwall a character of its own, while inland the countryside is dotted with remnants of its past mining industries.
