Easter holiday family ideas in Newquay rain or shine!

Easter holidays are upon us and come rain or shine there will be 3 weeks to keep the children happy and make some treasured memories.

Don’t let the English weather spoil your family time- if you are still deliberating whether to book a break by the sea, here are some suggestions all within a short walk of our hotel……

Pirate’s Quest

For a unique family fun day visit Pirate’s Quest a short walk from Newquay Town Centre, escape into a world of piracy, myths and legends, with a live pirate crew, the immersive walk-through experience includes theatrical actors, amazing special effects and an interactive treasure hunt. Older children and adults will love the “Scare section” which can be avoided for younger pirates or faint-hearted! Discounted tickets are available for guests at the Atlantic Hotel reception desk.

Escape Surf School

All the family can learn to surf with our approved surf school, led by Pro Surfer, Mike Young, a private lesson will get the family up and riding the waves.

The beautiful Towan Beach is the venue for your lesson, the beach faces North-West which means it picks up swell (which us surfers love) but can be very sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds, which means the waves are usually clean, and lined up perfectly – ideal for learning to surf, reception can book discounted lessons for guests.
