When you're comparing flights to Newquay it's not just the airfare you should check carefully. As the surf capital of the UK, it’s worth reading the luggage charges to take your board down with you (although you can easily hire one when you arrive). This Cornish town has made the transition from pretty seaside resort to surf-shack city in just a few decades. But whether you're carving a wake on the waves or scoffing the scones in a tea shop, Newquay's verdant cliffs, framing its turquoise and gold beaches, are sure to leave breathless.
It's probably no surprise that cheap tickets to Newquay are easy to find in the winter months, especially January and February. Only the most hardened surfer will be ready to brave the swell when the sea is an angry, iron-grey. But you can find good deals in late September after the summer holidays are over, or even in spring before the Easter break rolls in. Midweek flights are also good for bargain seekers, with Tuesday and Wednesday being the best days to fly out. And if you don't mind a leisurely afternoon flight, you'll save a few pennies too.
Newquay is far from being the most popular domestic location, and its airport is something of a minnow, but you can book flights to Newquay from across the UK. Budget carrier Flybe has the biggest offering, running routes from London's Gatwick, Birmingham International, East Midlands and Manchester airports. From Scotland, the extra time for stops and additional expense make flights down to the Cornish Riviera a venture only for the most dedicated – although summer flights are laid on by Flybe from Edinburgh.
Newquay Airport only lies a few miles east of the seaside charms of Newquay itself, and can be reached by car, bus or taxi. Those picking up a car at the airport should head onto the B3276, which gets you surf-side in about 15 minutes. The 56 bus also plies the same route, but only once every 2 hours. It takes about half an hour to get into town. Taxis run from the terminal building into Newquay too, for around £5.
There's no doubt that if the surf's up, a good proportion of those in Newquay will be heading down to the beaches to try and catch a wave. The most famous surf beach is Fistral, but Whipsiderry is also highly rated as it offers a less crowded scene to paddle out on. Newquay has plenty else to offer if surfing is not your cup of tea. Golden days spent lounging on those sparkling beaches are hard to beat, but there are also golf courses to tee off on and boats for bobbing about on if you fancy a fishing trip.
