Pretty obvious choice but still one of the best. Fistral Beach is one of the best known surfing beaches and holds competitions there all the time. Whilst in Newquay its a must to go to Cafe Irie on Fore Street. Its a little hippy cafe that has many quirks.
When you have had enough of all the excitement in Newquay then Crantock is the place to go. Not much there apart from beauty, basically there is a lot there but not in terms of shops. Great pub to visit whilst there is The Bowgie Inn. Its apparently where Aphex Twin started out and did there first gigs.
