The small village of Sennen Cove is located around 12 miles west of St Ives and is just short of Land’s End. The village’s main attraction is its beach, a mile long stretch of pristine sand facing into the full might of the Atlantic Ocean. As you can imagine, Sennen is a popular spot with surfers all year round. Generally speaking the waves get bigger the further down the beach you head, so there is something for all levels. If you fancy surfing and don’t have a board (or a clue!) there are boards for hire and lessons available.
In the Summer the beach can get busy but there is plenty of parking so this generally doesn’t cause a problem. It is a great family beach with plenty of facilities and the experienced lifeguard team are very much on the ball, and well equipped making it pretty safe. It’s only a 3 minute walk into the village from the beach if you need a shop. There is also ‘The Beach’ restaurant which, as you may imagine, is right by the beach – the food here is good but pricey.
