The UK’s unofficial surfing capital, Newquay is shrugging off its image as a full–throttle party town and putting itself firmly on the map as a surfing and foodie mecca. Michelin–starred eateries and swanky sundowner bars are flinging open their doors between the surf outlets and amusement arcades – even Rick Stein is frying up fish and chips beside the wave–lashed sands. Of course, surfing is still at the heart of the town’s laidback beach culture, but beyond the world–class waves at Fistral Beach there’s plenty of peaks to choose from on the string of seven beaches between Crantock Bay and Lusty Glaze. Pentire Headland is a beautiful quiet haven where the stunning turquoise blue River Gannel offers an almost Caribean ambiance combined with palm trees and Cornish botanicals, while the small seaside village of Porth is home to one of Cornwall's most family-friendly beaches, with soft sand, rock pools and a safe stream to spash about in. Cornish Gems offer a stunning collection of properties in this area, including those that are dog friendly and have sea views, begin your search below.
