Sennen Cove Beach

Sennen Cove Beach

Sennen Cove is one of Cornwall's most popular beaches with families in the summer months, featuring beachside cafes, ample parking in adjacent large car parks and an award-winning surf centre with surf shop, surf equipment hire and tuition. A lifeguard service is in operation across the summer season - no dogs are allowed across peak summer season. A family friendly restaurant with children's menu, great seafood and alfresco terrace overlooking the bay also sits alongside the award-winning beach.

The South West Coast Path - Pendeen to Sennen Cove

The South West Coast from Pendeen to Sennen Cove via St Just (around 9 miles) is spectacular coastal walking territory, taking in the great white lighthouse at Pendeen Watch and the rugged rocky granite coastline which faces the Atlantic head on. You'll find a choice of fantastic spots for a picnic, and the views are wonderful, with frequent sightings of seals and seabirds.

Pendeen Watch Lighthouse

Built in 1900, this lighthouse was much needed to warn ships of the offshore rocks and protruding Gurnard's Head further up the coast near Zennor. Designed by Sir Thomas Matthews, a Trinity House Engineer, and built by Arthur Carkeek of Redruth, the headland had to be flattened here before Pendeen Lighthouse could be erected. The lighthouse is just 2 miles from St Just, and went electric in 1926, then automatic in 1995, with a new fog signal and detector added in 1996.

Levant Mine & Zennor

One of Cornwall and Devon's designated World Heritage mine sites, Levant Mine with its central great beam engine sits perched on the clifftop of the rocky coastline between St Just and Zennor. Levant is where you'll find the only Cornish beam engine still in steam and in its original mine site. Zennor on the coast between St Ives and St Just is a delightful ancient Cornish granite village with a small folk museum digging deep into the social history of the area.
