During your Newquay hen weekend, there’s no doubt you’ll be wanting to dine out at some top eateries. Even if you’ve hired a self-catering apartment for the duration of your stay, you won’t want to miss out visiting one of Newquay’s restaurants. Being by the sea, there are lots of seafood joints to dine at. You can try calamari, squid, muscles, and seabass, just to name a few. A quick search on TripAdvisor will show you the top-rated seafood restaurants so we recommend doing some research before heading out.
If you and the hens are not into the ocean’s delicacies, then you’ll find plenty of cheap cafes, pubs and eateries serving international cuisine. You can find them scattered along the coast and in the town, so whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Newquay will not disappoint!
Newquay boasts a young, fun and vibrant nightlife. The streets are lined with bars and clubs, so you won’t be hard pushed to find somewhere atmospheric to spend your evening out with the girls. Drinks are reasonably priced all over the town, so you can let go and have a good time without keeping an eye on the kitty! We recommend Newquay’s largest club, Berties. If you and the girls are itching for a dance, some good music and a couple of drinks then this is probably your best bet.
If you and the ladies are looking for some live music, then there are plenty of venues that offer everything from rock n’ roll, jazz, blues and indie music. However, if you’re seeking an uber relaxing and chilled-out, beachy weekend then the city boasts loads of quirky venues perfect for good food and a bit of downtime. Newquay is also spoilt for the traditional pub and if you prefer your drinks with plenty of conversation then finding a comfy corner of one of these is perfect on your hen weekend in Newquay.

The best time to visit Newquay for your hen do, really depends what kind of atmosphere you want to enjoy. If you want gorgeous weather but don’t want to be caught up in the wave of tourists, then June or September are ideal months to throw your hen do in Newquay. Not only will you be able to enjoy the beaches in peace, but it will cheaper than July and August when the school holidays are in full swing.

However, if you want to throw yourselves into the Newquay party vibes, then you might want to visit during the Boardmasters Surf and Music Festival which takes place in mid-August. This festival has been running every year since 1981 and thrives on the theme of adventure, creativity, music and, of course, surfing! It attracts thousands of visitors and the whole town embraces the festivities, making it an exciting time to spend during your hen weekend in Newquay.

If you’re planning your Newquay hen do in the colder months around October – January, then you’ll find there are plenty of things to do in Newquay which will keep you warm. There are lots of attractions including The Blue Reef Aquarium which will get you close to the ocean without sitting on a windy beach. There is also Newquay Zoo for hens who love animals. You’ll find over 130 species of wildlife and opportunities to help towards their conservation efforts.
Getting around Newquay is not difficult, and although the roads are busy in town at the height of the holiday seasons, it is easy to navigate on foot. It is quite a small town but certainly doesn't feel like one in summer. If you don't want to risk your heels and ankles then you could hop aboard one of Newquay’s local buses, the funky road train, find a taxi or hire a car.
Though the town is surrounded with bumpy cliffs and downhill paths to the beach, the centre is flat with paved pedestrian areas, crossings and dropped curves. The most accessible beach is Porth Beach as it has a shallow concrete down to the sand, meaning nobody needs to miss out on sunbathing and toe-dipping during your hen do in Newquay!
