Discover winter wellness in Newquay with an off-season escape
As the leaves begin to fall and the temperatures cool, Newquay settles into its peaceful, off-season pace. With fewer people around, it’s the perfect time of year to unwind, breathe in the fresh Atlantic air, and book a break that leaves you feeling truly renewed.
Whether you want to warm up in a wood-fired sauna by the beach or join a yoga class for a full-body stretch, these carefully curated experiences are perfect for making the most of the off-season calm.
You can mix and match from the suggested activities below to create a great day out during your stay. Please note: You will need to contact the venue or experience provider directly to book.
Newquay is known for its spectacular beaches, but it’s also home to secret coves and pools. Get to know the coast and marine life better with the Adventure Gully coasteering experience from Newquay Activity Centre. You’ll be in the expert hands of industry-leading coasteering instructors who provide all the specialist equipment you’ll need, including thick winter wetsuits and helmets. Plus, they have heated changing rooms.
Sauna by the sea
Warm up after a sea swim and enjoy an invigorating eucalyptus whisk massage or salt scrub at Olla Hiki Sauna, a mobile wood-fired sauna experience by the coast. You’ll find this wellness space at locations around Cornwall, but their HQ is in Newquay. See when they are next at the beach and check out their special events (including full moon swims) by visiting their website.
