Newquay’s evolution into the UK’s ultimate surfing and beach holiday resort, host to international surfing competitions, is a late 20th century phenomena. The resort took off in the 1960s with an influx of international lifeguards. Prior to the 1960s, New Quay’s history is predominantly as a small Cornish port based around fishing, and export of china clay and copper. Today this top British surfing and family beach resort is a multi award-winner with over 10 golden sandy beaches and many seaside attractions from aquariums, zoos, steam railways and theme parks to surf schools and indoor water parks.
