Around Newquay, natural beauty & wildlife abound

Newquay has two faces: one bustling, modern, gregarious; the other, tranquil, historic, uncrowded. If you want to get away, and mean "from it all ', simply exchange the buzz of the beach and resort for the quiet charisma of the surrounding countryside.

The walks round here could fill a book. Within a 10 mile radius of the town, you can uncover the secrets of Bronze and Iron Age settlements, explore a unique tidal estuary teeming with rare birdlife and reveal wreckers ' lairs, forgotten mineshafts and slumbering villages older than Domesday.
Immediately south of Newquay, the long pointing finger of the Gannel estuary is home to over 5,000 birds, including godwits and greenshanks. To the north, the switchback coastal path takes you to Mawgan Porth, gateway to the vale of Lanherne, to Carnewas Island and mine, and the starkly beautiful Carnewas (formerly Bedruthan Steps).
Inland is a chain of choice. Small places with vivid histories like Crantock, St Mawgan and St Columb Major. The "Cornish Alps" of China Clay around Roche's famous Rock. And, further still, Bodmin, its rugged moor and the lush contrast of the beautiful Cardinham Woods.
Walking is easiest, but there is plenty of scope and provision for bike and horse-riding. The Tourist Information Centre has details and prices
