7 July 2022

 

AVOID THE CHAOS OF UK AIRPORTS AND TRAVELLING ABROAD

 

Traveling abroad currently is showing to be quite a difficult and stressful experience, with long airport delays and many restrictions impacting the joy of taking a holiday.

 

Just a few hours drive from the majority of places within the UK, Newquay Cornwall is a paradise in waiting. Oceans to match those abroad, some of the best beaches in the world, and long warm days finished off with what we believe to be some of the most magical sunsets in the world.

 

 

The Crystal Clear Water

 

Seeing the ocean in Newquay during the summer months might lead you to think you were in fact abroad. Bright, clear, turquoise waters perfect for swimming, and surfing.

Tropical-looking coves and caves exist in abundance, all waiting to be explored in the warm summer sun.

Newquay is awash with water sports including, coasteering, paddleboarding, kayaks, jetskis, and surf hire available at every turn.

Our helpful and informed reception team is always on hands with advice on where to hire, or secret spots to explore.

 

 

The Surf

 

Surfing is simply put, part of Newquay, it’s in our soul. Often described as the surf capital of the UK, there is no better place to try your hand at learning the local’s favourite pass time.

Newquay is home to several great beaches, all with waves perfect for those looking to learn. The perfect family or couple activity, surfing offers so much fun to be had. Everywhere you turn in Newquay you will see board and wetsuit hire, along with lessons available.

The jewel in Newquay’s surfing crown is without doubt Fistral Beach, a short stroll from the hotel front door. Known worldwide as the mecca of UK surfing, Fistral is the perfect place to ride some waves as a beginner or watch the locals tackle big waves as the sun begins to set.

 

 

Watersports

 

An adventurer’s playground, Newquay is the perfect getaway for those seeking fun and adventure on the sea.

Just behind the Atlantic Hotel, you will find hidden caves amongst crystal clear waters, perfect for stand-up paddleboarding.

For those looking for a high adrenaline activity why not try coasteering. Leap from high rocks into man-made plunge pools and hidden coves.

Surrounded by the ocean the Atlantic Hotel is a short stroll from the local harbour where you can hire jet skis and take to the sea exploring and creating your own adventure.

 

 

The Sunsets

 

There truly is no sunset like a Newquay sunset. In summer warm oranges fill the sky as the sun begins to drop into the sea.

A mere few minute’s walk from the Atlantic Hotel is Fistral Beach, where you can relax on the stunning sandy beach and watch the locals take the last waves of the day as the sky begins to fill with the most magical warm colours.

One thing is for sure, you will never forget your first sunset on Fistral Beach.

 

 

The History

 

When we say we are proud of our history, we really mean it. A stay with us at The Atlantic Hotel is a stay walking the same steps as some of the most famous people in the world.

The world’s most famous band ‘The Beatles’ stayed in this very hotel during their now-infamous visit whilst filming the iconic Magical Mystery tour in 1967.

Trace their steps in and around the hotel and have your picture taken in some of the places included in the movie, such as the outdoor pool, the Huers Hut, or perhaps on the grand steps to the rear of the hotel where the infamous group photo was taken.
