West Penwith or ‘The Land’s End Peninsular’ is situated in the far South West of Cornwall and is arguably the most picturesque area of the country. The nearest beaches in Cornwall to Penzance are in Mount’s Bay at Marazion and Long Rock. Our favourite local beach in Cornwall is Gwithian Beach near Hayle.
There is a diverse land seascape with hidden sandy coves such as Porthcurno & Pedn Vounder, and excellent surfing beaches such as Sennen Cove which is great for the family with lots of sand and rock pools.
The stunning coast of Cornwall is accessible via the South West Coastal Path which extends to nearly 300 miles. The heritage, wildlife, geology and scenery along the Coast Path are truly inspirational and every day walking it brings stunning new experiences.
Gunwalloe is an attractive south-west facing cove on the Lizard with a stream running through the sandy beach which is ideal for paddling.
Three miles of glorious sand and steeply shelving shingle. At low tide it is possible to walk in an easterly direction, past Loe Bar and the Penrose Estate. You’re sure to find a delicious ice cream or Cornish Pasty to whet your appetite.
A south-east-facing beach around 3 miles from Lands End and 8 miles from Penzance. The easy access, soft white sands and clear blue/green waters of the beach make it a popular destination for holiday-makers.
This is a huge beach with golden sand washed by the Atlantic Ocean. Great for families, walkers and surfers.
Well worth taking your bucket and spade, this is an award-winning Blue Flag 2012 beach with safe bathing surrounded by subtropical splendour.
Just one of many secret beaches on the south coast of Cornwall, Kenneggy Sands is a sandy beach which can be reached at low tide from Praa Sands. This beach can also be accessed along a winding clifftop footpath with final descent using chained ladders, ideal if you have a keen sense of adventure!
On the coastal road between St Ives and Lands End. A ten minutes’ walk from The Gurnard’s Head Pub at Treen you will find the picturesque Treen Cove. The Cove is a short distance east of the headland and overlooked by the crumbling Chapel Jane. We highly recommend the stunning walk which starts at the Gurnard’s Head at Treen and takes you along the coastal path to Zennor and back through fields and farms to the starting point at The Gurnard’s Head. After the 5 mile (ish) walk you may chose to refuel and enjoy a roast dinner or delicious pint of Ale at the highly regarded Gurnard’s Head.
