Just you, me and the sea…
It’s no secret that Newquay is utterly spoiled for amazing family and surf beaches, but the other advantage is that you are never far from the wilder parts of the Cornish coast. What could be more perfect than just the two of you, lapping waves and a spot all of your own?
There are various quieter or even semi-secret Cornish beaches where you might plan a romantic excursion. The curiously named Whipsiderry Beach is just a stone’s throw from the main Newquay beaches (TR7 3LX /OS grid ref.SW 8316 6314), but is a wilder warren of rocky outcrops and little caves. This has to be one of the best picnic spots in Newquay; don’t forget, we can always put together a little lunch hamper at the hotel too. Just let our staff know and we’ll do the rest.
Romance on the Waves
There is always something romantic about being on the water, whether it is the open sea or a quiet lake and a rowing boat. For a pleasant way to spend a sunny afternoon, Trenance Boating Lake is very near Hotel Bristol and has boats for hire, should you wish to take your other half for a relaxing lap or two of the lake. Impress her with your skill at the oars; or just try and travel in a straight line.
Sea cruises are another way to pull at the heart strings, however, especially if your partner has always wanted to see seals, dolphins and other sea creatures in their natural environment. Newquay Sea Safaris run various trips depending on the season; you could tag along with a group to go wildlife spotting, try snorkelling together, or even book your own private voyage for two.
The best named beach ever for romantic evenings out?
Was a more perfect name ever given to a beach for lovers than Lusty Glaze? The setting alone might make your heart flutter, but for couples there is more to this location than just the quirky name. It has a terrific reputation for both food and live music in Newquay and Cornwall as a whole, serving up great live entertainment and innovative fresh cuisine all year round. And at mere footsteps from our doors at Hotel Bristol, you’ll find your way home with ease, even if you do have that extra glass of bubbly. Do book early if you’re planning a Valentine’s Day dinner!

Should rain threaten to dampen the romance, it’s always good to have a plan B. Come hell or high water, Newquay’s Lighthouse Cinema is not just a venue to see the latest blockbusters, but also National Theatre Live screenings. For those who crave a little high culture, you can watch productions from the likes of the Royal Shakespeare Company, or even live ballet and opera. For full Newquay cinema listings, visit the Lighthouse Cinema Website.
