Make The Most Of Your Time By The Coast With Newquay Activity Centre
If you’re visiting Cornwall for a weekend or a holiday, you simply can’t miss the chance to surf some of the UK’s best beaches.
As well as the abundance of independent retailers, surf shops, cafes, restaurants and bars in our lovely little town, we are also super lucky to have Newquay Activity Centre just around the corner. This one-stop shop for all things adventure has been in the town for over 20 years and their reputation for complete customer satisfaction is unwavering.
If you’re looking for top-quality surf lessons in Cornwall, epic coasteering routes or relaxing kayak tours, Newquay Activity Centre has it all and more from their location on Fore Street just above Towan Beach. These guys stock the best quality kit from the best brands on the market and their team of industry-leading instructors are friendly, patient and welcoming of all abilities. What better way to punctuate your stay at Oceanside than with the fresh air in your lungs and the crystal-clear water around your ankles.
We all know that staying on top of our mental health is super important, and it’s exciting experiences like this that really boost our mood and release feel-good endorphins into our minds. Spending time in or around the ocean makes you feel more connected, happier and healthier. Although we have felt the benefits of coastal living for many years, this is actually now a proven science and has led to author and marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols coining the term ‘Blue Mind’.
With the morning ocean views shining their way through our large bedroom windows, you may just find yourself tempted to get out and enjoy the crystal-clear waters straight after breakfast! Improve your Blue Mind state and see for yourself the benefits of spending time on or in the ocean. We are just a 5-minute walk from Newquay Activity Centre so you won’t even have to worry about packing a bag! Chuck your swimmers on in your hotel room and barefoot it round the corner where the team at Newquay Activity Centre will provide everything that you need for a few hours of awesome coastal exploration.
If you’re staying with us at Oceanside for a week or so, why not fully relax into the Newquay way of life and toe the line between relaxing hotel sea views and daily ocean-based adventures. Perhaps a week of surfing by day and relaxing by night is just the kind of holiday you’re after? Sea salt, sun and blue skies followed by a healthy meal looking out across the ocean in the evening. Oh and maybe a cold beer or two, you are on holiday after all!
If surfings not your thing, Newquay Activity Centre’s large range of activities means you’ll definitely find something else that piques your interest. Maybe a relaxing SUP paddle around the headland? Or, on the opposite side of the scale, an adventure-fuelled coasteer jumping off cliffs into deep-water plunge pools? The guys at Newquay Activity Centre are all about enjoying life outdoors and their friendly and experienced team will be happy to help in any way they can.
When you’re all adventure’d out and the sun is setting beyond the horizon, head back to Oceanside for dinner in our C-View restaurant before retiring for the night in one of our ocean-themed super comfortable bedrooms. And the best part? You get to do it all again tomorrow!
