Knowledge is power! That’s why we’ve pioneered an array of kids’ activities, which combine grin-inducing fun with essential sea safety skills and environmental education. By the end of any activity, your child will know the role of the lifeguards, the meaning of beach flags, the dangers of the coastal environment and how to signal for help if they get into trouble. Once your kids learn these vital skills, they’ll never forget them and they can pass along their new knowledge to family and friends! They will be introduced to:

  • Tides
  • Rip currents
  • Rocks
  • Role of lifeguards
  • Basic first aid
  • Wildlife to watch out for e.g. jellyfish and weaver fish
  • Local wildlife of the area
  • How you can help to protect the wildlife and our local environment



Our kid’s activities in Newquay are sure-fire ways to get kids off their phones and active outdoors. Having fun is the best way to learn new skills and underpin existing knowledge.


Whether it’s surfing, bodyboarding, coastal bush-craft, coasteering or an epic birthday party adventure, your child will build new skills and memories on an adventure to remember with Newquay Activity Centre!



Our team of world-class instructors were selected for their aptitude, experience and teaching ability. In addition to being SLSGB, RLSS Beach lifeguard and ISA Surf Instructor qualified, they all have extensive water experience underpinning their qualifications.


Newquay Activity Centre broadens their skill base through extensive in-house training, ensuring their experience extends to all weather and ocean conditions. Your children couldn’t be in better hands during our kid’s activities in Newquay. With our centre being open year-round, there’s no time like the present to get out and about!



Newquay’s Atlantic coastline has seen its fair share of dramatic events. From tea plundering pirates using its caves under cover of darkness, to superstitious rituals and heroic lifeboat rescues; your kids will learn the historical background of Newquay’s coastlines and take home a deeper understanding of the heritage that shaped the Newquay of today.



Our activities can be tailored to suit all ages and abilities. If your child is below the age of eight, we recommend booking a private session to ensure they receive maximum 1 to 1 coaching from our instructors. Older children are welcome to join our group sessions where instructors to student ratios vary.


Sessions will begin with beach game warm-ups to get the blood pumping before stretching out. Our instructors will guide the group in the theory of their activity, running through essential safety briefings before starting the practical part of the session.


Beside the water’s edge, your kids will learn correct techniques, practice skills and all the activity elements before hitting the water for some Baywatch inspired training!


Get hands on with the native coastal habitats on exhilarating coasteers for kids, learn beach bushcraft and rock pooling skills on adventures with Fistral Rangers plus surfing and bodyboarding skills on the beach below our HQ.

Whether you would like to take part or not, you will easily be able to watch every activity or feel free to leave your children in the capable hands of our professional team and collect them later.



Our HQ is ideally located near Fistral, Great Western and Towan Beach, one of the most sheltered stretches of Cornwall’s northern coastline and the gateway to the Gazzle Peninsula. It is just a moments walk from Newquay town centre with eateries and cafes nearby for refuelling or picking up a caffeine fix. We are also surrounded by multiple parking options, both pay and non-pay locations. With the beach just below us, you will be in prime position for a day out to remember when booking our unforgettable kid’s activities in Newquay.



It’s not unusual to see seals and dolphins playing in the waters of Newquay Bay, popping up to say hello during surfing, bodyboarding and coasteering sessions. Of course we can’t guarantee they will make an appearance but flora and fauna is abundant along our coastlines!


During a recent coasteer we found over 80 different species and our instructors have worked closely with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust to build an extensive knowledge about our local wildlife!


The Gazzle is a sweep of cliff-line steeped in history. Smugglers caves, natural rapids, craggy inlets and hidden coves; our coastline holds a host of secrets just waiting to be discovered.



Every activity has been risk assessed by our instructors to ensure our coastal adventures in Newquay are the perfect combination of mellow and adrenaline-fuelled fun.
