A guide to outdoor sports in Newquay

23 February 2015

With spring on the way it’s an excellent time to get back outside and breathe in the fresh sea air, here’s our guide to how to be more outdoorsy at The Atlantic Hotel:

Hit the surf: You can’t visit Newquay and not dip your toe in the waters of Fistral beach! So why not give a surf lesson a try: catering for all abilities, Fistral Surf School is open all year round offering lessons, private coaching and hire.

Zip zip zip!: For an absolutely incredible adrenaline buzz, look no further than the Lusty Glaze zip wire. 750 feet long and 120 feet high, this exhilarating aerial zip wire is Europe’s longest, highest and fastest.

What’s more, to finish you’ll do a 50ft abseil back down to the beach below: the perfect quick fix for adrenaline junkies.

More fun as a mermaid – Ever fancied being a mermaid or merman? Well now you can! Free Dive UK has launched the UK’s first mermaid course right here in Newquay.

You’ll be taken through step by step how to get comfortable in the water wearing a full professional mermaid tail and fin.

Cornish coasteering: – Explore a wilder side of Newquay by taking to the coastline like never before. Make your way along the coast by clambering on rocks, swimming through waves and jumping off small cliff faces.

Newquay Activity Centre runs guided coasteering sessions, the ultimate adventure for those looking for an adrenaline fuelled day!
