Sennen Cove Beach

Lands End West Cornwall
The beautiful Sennen Cove beach, also known as Whitesands beach, is located on the West coast of Cornwall close to Land's End. With its soft, fine golden sand, far reaching views, and rugged surroundings, it's a wonderful place to spend some time. There's excellent water quality at Sennen beach and it was recommended by the Marine Conservation Society Good beach guide in 2014.

At almost a mile long the beautiful beach at Sennen reaches round to the neighbouring beach of Gwenver at low tide. Facing West the beach embraces the full force of the Atlantic ocean, creating brilliant surfing conditions, it's the most westerly surfing spot in Cornwall and is popular with surfers. A small stream meanders through the middle of the beach to the sea. There are some sand dunes at the back of the beach to provide a sheltered spot to sit and the beach is generally a bit quieter on the far side of the stream.

Sennen itself is a small sleepy coastal village with a local pub, cafe, restaurant, take away and shop. Situated in the Far West of Cornwall and surrounded by spectacularly wild and rugged landscape, it's a beautiful area to visit and very popular with tourists during the Summer months.
