Newquay was originally the fishing port of Towan Blistra before the new quay was built in the fifteenth century. For many years, the main industry was pilchard fishing and salting. Even before this, it was the site of an Iron Age fort. Although the pilchards disappeared long ago, there are still a few boats fishing from Newquay and there are plenty of pleasure craft here as well. Another intersting throwback to the days when pilchard fishing was the towns lifeblood is the Huer’s Hut located high above the headland. It’s a perculiar little round white hut with steps leading up to the roof where the huer would stand and cry, ‘Hevva, Hevva!‘, when pilchards were sighted.
Newquay is famous for the Boardmasters surfing championships, held at Fistral Beach, which attract competitors from all over the world. The main town beaches are Towan, Great Western, Lusty Glaze and Tolcarne, all of which are reasonably sheltered and safe for swimming and sun-worshipping.
