“Fistral Beach Newquay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Newquay is not my type of place at all as it typifies all that I hate about English seaside towns but the beaches are fabulous and although it was too cold to go on any of them as it was November, we spent a very entertaining hour watching the surf dudes playing about in the waves.
