Storm watching in Newquay - Atlantic Storms and Winter Breaks
Winter visitors to Newquay have always enjoyed the winter storm watching on Cornwall's North Atlantic Coast. The image below was taken on the North Coast on a typically bright and sunny day in December.
Winter Storm Cornwall
Three thousand miles of open ocean stretches from Cornwall to Newfoundland and the winter storms create spectacular sights all along the north Coats. Watching and enjoying these storms and their aftermath in those typically sunny and bright clear winter days in Cornwall is an experience enjoyed by visitors and locals alike.
The Storm watching season runs from November to February March. Although a relatively new tourism phenomenon locals have been watching, bracing themselves and surfing in the tail end of winter storms here for many years.
Storm watching is one of these simple and relaxing pleasures that require nothing of the participant but to watch and marvel at the natural power of the ocean.
Storm watching is best from ocean-front accommodation when enjoying an afternoon tea, or for the more adventurous from walking the coastal path high on the cliffs. Experience the power of the wind, watch as row upon row of giant waves crash and pound the cliffs and soar above harbour walls. Listen to the power and sounds of wind, wave and ocean.
Newquay on the north coast of Cornwall is the ideal base for a visit during the winter season. Great value deals on short breaks are available and the mild climate and spectacular quality of the light make it the ideal choice for a winter break.
