There’s always a special atmosphere at the Newquay Fish Festival, a unique mix of Newquay’s vibrant holiday scene and the traditional fishing community of the old Cornish harbour. Together they bring the harbour to life for this three day annual event and provide Newquay with a showcase to be proud of.
Newquay harbour is less well known for its excellent beach, a favourite of local families during the busy Newquay holiday season. During the Fish Festival the beach is alive with family activity: sand castle competitions, Punch & Judy, Rock Pool shows and organised games and events.
You’ll probably see the famous Newquay Harbour Seals over the festival weekend.
