Newquay Hotels and accommodation like Smarties Surf Lodge are your ideal gateway to an enchanting family experience in Newquay, catering to all ages with an abundance of attractions, particularly for children.

Start your adventure by exploring our seven distinctive beaches, all conveniently accessible from our Newquay hotels. Each beach offers unique experiences to delight every family member.

Bar Central Newquay

Perfect for the smallest family members, the tranquil Harbour Beach presents a safe haven with no large waves, allowing children to play freely at the water’s edge. Parents can kick back, enjoy a refreshment from the selection of pop-up food stalls, and indulge in local treats like ice cream and doughnuts, while the nearby bar serves delightful drinks for adults.

Not to be overlooked, our other Newquay beaches boast numerous rock pools – a treasure trove for curious kids. They can spend hours hunting for crabs and other fascinating marine life. You’ll find a range of food stalls, novelty shops offering essential beach toys, and even an aquarium on Towen Beach, right on the sands.
