Pride of the Atlantic coast, Newquay boasts some of the finest beaches in Europe. The picturesque old harbour is a joy to explore and Trenance Leisure Park offers endless holiday fun. Perhaps ride the Lappa Valley miniature gauge steam train or drop in at one of the atmospheric smugglers’ pubs for a colourful reminder of Cornwall’s shady past! We explore the Cornish coastline discovering the picturesque ports of Looe, Polperro, St Ives and Penzance.
