Godrevy Beach, Hayle

4.9
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.

  • Fabulous - to see the seals in their natural habitat is just such an experience. There isn't the normal Health and Safety barriers and paths which add to the experience.....I think I would feel differently if I had young children with me though :). There is a variety of car parks available from cliff top to next to the beach. There are wonderful walks to take it you Dan just sit in the car and look at the surfers and St Ives...the choice is yours. Wonderful viewpoint for sunset also. The whole area is a must try experience.
  • A wonderful location, and a great base for walks along the Cornish coastal walk. Also a great spot from viewing grey seals
  • Great costal walk with stunning views. So nice to smell the sea breeze! Safety barriers where inexistent on the coastal path so could be tricky for young children
  • A perfect place to spend the whole day either walking around the area, relaxing on the meadows or go swimming. Besides it's a top spot for surfing. There is a fee at the parking space but comparatively okay for a whole day.
  • Totally gorgeous. Great atmosphere. The parking is expensive (£5?) but free with a national trust membership.
