Cornwall in the spring is fresh and revitalising. The storms take a break (usually), the sun sits higher in the sky, and the sea calms itself if its playing nicely. A great time for coast walking and exploring before high season hits. In summer the beaches fill with families and surfers, there are day trips out of Newquay harbour, sightseeing and fishing, and long balmy evenings sipping cocktails on The Headland's famous Terrace overlooking Fistral.
Relax, it's High Season at The Headland
There are so many puns we could go for here - you two were mermaid for each other, let’s shellebrate because there’s two less fish in the sea. Don’t worry, beach happy etc, etc. But really it downplays the magic of a beachside wedding.
Right on our doorstep, you really can’t miss it, is Newquay’s, and possibly Cornwall’s, most iconic beach - Fistral. It is quite simply one of the most consistent and best surfing beaches in the UK and Europe.
Check out tides and surf conditions on our Fistral webcam.
There’s an abundance of classic Cornish, dog-friendly beaches on our doorstep. Which is just as well, because The Headland adores dogs (and their owners)...
The Headland is perched above one of Europe’s most famous surfing beaches at Fistral.
Fistral, the UK’s most famous surfing beach, is on our doorstep. And The Surf Sanctuary, one of Newquay’s most respected surf schools is on our grounds.
We’re surrounded by water here at The Headland. And the best way to explore it is to get under it.
With a coastline or around 300 miles and beaches facing every point of the compass, Cornwall offers lots of options for touring during the summer.
Jump, climb, swim, and just go with the flow of the tides. Coasteering is an instant rush.
Named after the reef it rolls over, The Cribbar is Newquay’s own big wave.
The picturesque heart of the port, Newquay Harbour is a must visit any time of year.
