Discover Sennen:

Cornwall's Sennen Cove has crystal clear water and, with the swell coming straight in from the Atlantic, is a great surf spot all year round. This beautiful coastal village in West Cornwall is situated just eight miles from Penzance and one mile from Land’s End. It is bounded by the sea to the west and bordered by the parishes of St Just to the north, St Buryan to the east and St Levan to the south.

There’s a little harbour that supports a small fleet of fishing boats and a long stretch of golden sand at Sennen Cove beach, popular with families and surfers alike.
