Godrevy Head, Hayle

4.9
Soak in the beauty of Cornish nature, admire the sea views, and--if you're up for it--experience the thrill of one the UK's best surfing destinations at Godrevy Head. The scenic peninsula, renowned for its unspoiled natural surroundings, supports a wealth of plant and animal life. Nestled below towering cliffs, the beaches here are a heaven for surfers, while seals and dolphins frequent the surrounding waters. To get a good look at these visitors, it's a good idea to bring a pair of binoculars. The wind can blow strong here, so make sure to bring a jacket or some other warm item of clothing. Put Godrevy Head into our Hayle road trip tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Hayle.
