Great beach and starting point for Land's End. Parking can get full but well worth it. Lot of boarding and good sunset.

We visited for four hours and the time just flew by! It's a cracking beach with plenty of rock pools, surfing to watch, the surf school made for some good entertainment and plenty of places to get food from nearby.

There's some cracking views to be had from the car park. However, watch out on the way in, as there's a stupid big rock outside someone's house on the corner as you go in on the left-hand side. My back tyre clipped it scraping our...More

Such a lovely beach for young children - gently shelves. We enjoyed body boarding. Watch out for jellyfish being washed up. Worth kids wearing jelly shoes.

We stayed just up the hill in Sennen and walked down to the cove on our first night. The kids were jumping and running away from waves while my wife ad i just watched the huge waves. Well worth a visit.

Like the lager, probably the best beach in the world! Excellently policed by the Coastgaurd, RNLI and Lifeguards, doing a brilliant and thankless task of keeping the public safe. Can definitely recommend!!

Very nice beach and part of Cornwall. If you would like to walk from Sennen Cove to Lands End (what most people do that way), I suggest that you do it the other way around and walk from Lands End to Sennen Cove, so you...More
