Sennen Cove Beach
As you approach the village it’s not long before you spot the huge blue rollers heading towards the shore which makes Sennen Cornwall’s most westerly surf hotspot. With a long, sandy beach and small harbour the village combines working fishing port with laid back surf style.
On the beach there are top rate surfing conditions and safe bathing within flagged areas which are moved frequently to follow tidal movements while along the seafront, cafes, restaurants, pubs, galleries and shops provide the onshore niceties. The Pedn-men-du, a promontory that protects the cove from the westerly Atlantic gales, is a popular haunt for climbers and in the village the lifeboat station established over 150 years ago is open to visitors in summer.
Although a popular spot so can get very crowded, Sennen’s friendly atmosphere makes for a relaxed day at the beach in one of the UK’s most breathtaking locations.

Please note: Dogs are welcome on this beach except between 1 May and 30 September (08:00am - 07:00pm) when a seasonal dog ban is in place (2018).
