Godrevy Beach, Gwithian

#9 of 78 in Beaches in Cornwall
Enjoy sweeping ocean views at Godrevy Beach, a stretch of Cornish coast popular among surfers and walkers. The 4.8 km (3 mi) golden sand beach is sheltered by dunes fringed with vegetation, ending in a low, rocky headland. High cliffs and dramatic coves make the beach a scenic hike, while a lighthouse on an island just off the shore adds to the overall scenery. The beach can hold a swell of up to 2.4 m (8 ft), good for those just learning to surf.

  • Great beach with good accessibility. Ice cream truck was a hit with the kids also! Nice sand and friendly staff.  more »
  • Such a good place. A huge beach, plenty of room, lovely walks, surfing, and swimming, and a couple of really good places to eat. Rocks and rock pools to explore, something for everyone.  more »
  • Never been here before but it was well worth the wait! If you like wild, windy, rugged unspoilt natural beauty you can't go wrong here. Lovely walks etc. Just a shame the weather came in bad as would've liked to explore much further.
  • A classic Cornish beach. Easy to get to with no steps. Rocks to climb on and sand to sit on. Walk further up to the cliff top and look down at the sealions basking in the sun and swimming in the sea.
