5 reasons why September is the best time to holiday in Cornwall…
If you visit Newquay in September then you are one of the lucky ones!
Here’s why we think September is the best time to holiday here:
1.) Warmer waters
The summer sun has been busy warming the waters and in September it reaches its highest temperatures – perfect for doing some of our favourite activities – surfing, swimming and diving in the clear Cornish ocean waters.
2.) Less crowds
The summer crowds have dispersed giving visitors the chance to explore a quieter Cornwall. Enjoy relaxing days out visiting popular attractions with less people around. The Cornish coast is one of the most beautiful in the world, why not stroll down to a small cove or beach and have it to yourself for the day – perfect!
3.) Surf’s Up!
Newquay is known as the surfing capital of England and September is one of the best times to enjoy it. September benefits from the water still being warm and some early winter swells.
Whether you are a beginner or advanced surfer, why not book a Surf lesson at Quiksilver Surf School.
4.) September buzz
Even out of peak season, Cornwall still has a spring it is step in September. Throughout September, food, culture and music festivals are buzzing with Cornish produce and talent.
Events happening in Cornwall and the surrounding areas this September 2017 include:
8th – 10th September: Newquay Fish Festival
8th – 10th September: Little Orchard Cider and Music Festival, Penhallow
14th September: Open Air Silent Cinema on the Killacourt, Newquay
23rd – 24th September: British Stand Up Paddle Surfing National Championships
29th September: Looe Music Festival
5.) Indian Summer
With those powerful, warm Atlantic currents and a southerly latitude, the Autumn months in Cornwall are amongst the warmest in the country. That means you can enjoy Cornwall in all its wonderful-ness long after the start of the school term has started forcing most holidaymakers home.
