Godrevy Beach, Gwithian

4.9
#29 of 69 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.

  • Lovely place. However not wheelchair friendly. We went mid Feb and, although there were car park spaces, it was still quite busy. Lovely views over north cliffs.
  • Love it here! First discovered the place back in the summer whilst on holiday and was thrilled to watch wild seals! Came back here in the autumn and saw an abundance of seals with their pups- made my day!
  • Brilliant spot for the beach. An amazing Cove for wildlife with up to 100 seals in the Cove and lots of bird life.
  • This fantastic location to visit sand dunes are just awesome kids loved exploring then and sliding down long walks cheap parking
  • Cornwall has a beautiful coastline and this is another fine example, with plenty of walks on offer and beautiful beaches this is a wonderful place any time of the year, particularly beautiful when the weather is a bit wild in the winter.
