Stunning landscape on this coastal path encompassing Gwithian Beach to Hell’s Mouth. Such a contrast in landscape from a 3 mile beach to crashing, dramatic waves by such a picturesque lighthouse.

This NT spot is well worth the fee even if not a member. So beautiful and clean and well cared for. Being a wheelchair user is not a problem other than a few bumps etc. Access to the beach - with care. Great for the...More
It was a cloudy day but that did not diminish our enjoyment of the stunning coastline. Depending on where you start, you will see a fabulous beach, great waves crashing on huge boulders, a lonely lighthouse, seals frolicking in the water off the coast and...More

On this occasion we continued the walk to Hells Mouth. More stunning scenery and not too long a walk. Unfortunately the...More

The walk and view are an artful experience. Whether you study the whole or focus on the hundreds of details there are colors, textures and movement to study, appreciate and amaze you. The interaction of all the elements will keep your attention at every turn

This path is not close to the railway station. From Penzance, however, you can take the Branch line to St Ives, which is stunning & with lots of walking to do. Should you want to walk by Godrevy lighthouse then you will need to continue the coastal path for a few miles, through Carbis Bay, Lelant & Hayle and then you will be in proximity to the lighthouse. The lighthouse is clearly visible from St Ives & the whole area is stunning so you will have plenty to see & do. The branch line is actually a nice little trip to do anyway. I hope you enjoy your holiday!
