Hello, we are Reef Lodges Team from Newquay (Cornwall). We have a huge experience working with groups, surfers and schoolchildren.

We have two lodges: Reef Island Lodge and Blue Reef Lodge. We offers a variety of rooms, including a penthouse, private (2 to 6 person) rooms and studios.

Most rooms feature spectacular sea views! Also there are spacious cafes with social areas, bars, TV and Sony PlayStation!

Newquay is the real Surf Paradise, a fantastic place to test your skills on waves. Also Newquay has legendary surfing festivals "Boardmasters" and BUCS weekend, crazy nightlife with clubs, bars, music venues all along the coast. But there are places to relax as well.

Location

Blue Reef Lodge has a very advantageous position, because it is in the heart of Newquay. Great Western Beach, Towan Beach and Tolcarne Beach with various bars & restaurants, shops and supermarkets is a 1 minute walk from it.

The Blue Reef Aquarium, right by Towan beach, is well worth a visit. At low tide you can walk all the way across the beach to the traditional Cornish harbor, where you can find an excellent crab sandwich or ice cream. The most famous beaches are Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay.

Newquay railway station and coach station are both within a 5 minute walk from the accommodation. Blue Reef is only 4 miles from Newquay Airport and Newquay Zoo is 0.8 miles away.

Reef Island Lodge is located only 2 minutes walk to Towan beach. Reef Island Lodge is brand new, super relaxing, comfy and stylish. It is absolutely perfect for a surf getaway, or even just a break by the sea.

Towan Beach is directly near the studio, just a quick walk along the Island Crescet Road, down the steps and your feet are in the sand. This beautiful beach is very popular with both families and surfers, as it is located in the centre of Newquay, and it can be lively during the peak summer months.

Waves

With the Gulf Stream running up past Cornwall and keeping the water the warmest in the UK you can surf here all year round. The summer months are the best time to visit for beginner and intermediate surfers with idyllic waist high waves ideal to learn in or brush on your skills. Winter provides solid North Atlantic ground swells and combined with the colder water, a Newquay surf camp will appeal to advanced surfers looking to test themselves in big heavy waves that will test them in different ways than a surf trip to the tropics.

Fistral
Fistral is probably England’s most well-known surfing beach and can produce world-class, hollow peaks on its day. Undoubtedly Newquays most consistent wave with it being the home of QS events and in the past ASP events. Depending on the tide conditions other waves start to work here. South Fistral produces long left handers that break over a sand and rock bottom, which is sheltered when the wind blows from a northerly direction. North Fistral can produce some hollow barrels when the banks are lined up and is a great spot for beginners as it is well patrolled by lifeguards from April – October. On a low tide you can access the wave known as Little Fistral, this is the small bay to the north of the beach and offers fun left and right-hand peaks.

The Cribbar
As we have mentioned before Newquay had every time of wave for every ability of surfer and that includes its own big wave spot, known as The Cribbar. On a big North Atlantic swell the wave breaks of Towan Headland and produces massive double to triple overhead waves that should only be tackled by the most experienced surfers.

Towan Beach
When the predominant SW wind blows Towan Beach is the place to head as it blows offshore here. Working best at mid-tide it can produce fun left and right hand waves. A long left can also break off the harbour wall, just watch out for the seals.
Tolcarne
You can surf here at all stages of the tide with offshore being the same as Towan Beach. For a unique surfing experience head here at high tide when the infamous ‘Wedge’ starts to work, just respect the local bodyboarders who regulate the spot.

Lusty Glaze
This is the most northerly exposed beach Bay area beaches thus it picks up an extra foot or two of swell than the other beaches. Left and right handed waves break at all stages of the tide but is best from low to mid tide. This was the spot where the popular night surf competition was held.

Great Western Beach
A great spot for beginners that offers fun mellow walls at all stages of the tide, best from low to mid tide also, but can be surfed at high tide, just be aware of the rocks and backwash.
