I have shown you Treyarnon Bay in Cornwall. Now I’m going to show you Newquay beach.
Now where we were staying, we pretty much had our own beach: Treyarnon Bay. Where we had a beach bonfire and watched the sunset.
But on Saturday we soon made our way over to Newquay beach. The plan was to do some coasteering and to have some pizza.
Now for those who doesn’t know what coasteering is, let me quickly explains. It basically rock climbing and then jumping into the sea from a high cliff edge. Needless to say I didn’t do it.
Yeah the thought of doing coasteering scared me. I can do a lot of activities – but anything to do with water really scares me. So I passed on it and decided to explore Newquay beach instead.
Newquay beach is known as surfing beach. This is where all the surfers go to get their ride of the wave. I’m not into surfing either (remember fear of water!) but I do admire it and I do like to watch people surfing.
I pretty much spent the day sitting on the beach watching the surfers and having pizza for lunch. Yes, I did get burned on the top of my head and face. Which wasn’t great but at least I wasn’t looking like a red faced lobster.
If you’re not into water sport or activities and like me, prefer to watch for a safe distance. Then Newquay beach is still ideal for that. I took a brief walk along it coastline and there still things to do such as mini golf, amusements and a roller disco (it wouldn’t be a sea-side town if it didn’t have amusements, mini golf and a roller disco!).
Getting to Newquay beach from London isn’t the easiest – but I totally think it worth the journey. I think next time I will bring my husband.
