Why would anybody leave the serenity of Cornwall’s spectacular beaches in favour of swimming in choppy seas, exploring dark caves and leaping from dizzying heights into Atlantic waters? Our latest Coasteering blog series takes a look at the top reasons to come and have your own coasteering adventure in Newquay.

Coasteering is Great Exercise!

There’s no denying it, Coasteering is physically demanding. In order to explore the magnificently rocky coastline, your journey will require walking, swimming, scrambling, jumping, climbing, possibly some crawling, more swimming and a huge dose of smiling.

No two routes are the same and with the changing tides, even the same stretch of coastline on a different day becomes a new challenge that will keep you on your toes.  No treadmills, just good fun, exercising the way it should be, in nature’s gym.  You’ll have no shame in devouring a large Pasty after your coasteering adventure.

Coasteering is not the only full-body workout in Newquay – a Surfing Lesson in Newquay can be just as much fun, and burn just as many calories!

Coasteering can Boost Your Brain Power!

It has been well documented that undertaking regular exercise can improve your attention, memory and your ability to take in and process information. Coasteering in Newquay could boost your memory and problem-solving ability by 20%!

The mental benefits don’t end with exercise.  Being immersed in nature can help boost your mood and alleviate the stresses of an urban life. Studies have shown that exposure to the natural world can also reduce the symptoms of Alzheimers, Depression, Anxiety and ADD.  Your private Coasteering adventure in Newquay could be just the medicine required to make you feel refreshed and ready to take life by the horns.
