Coast & Countryside
The St Just and Land’s End area has some of the most spectacular scenery in the South West from its dramatic coast to its ancient field systems.
The South West Coast Path is the ideal route for exploring and stretches from St Ives in the north to Penzance in the South.
The rugged north coast at Zennor and Pendeen with its granite cliffs and rocky coves is shaped by the Atlantic swell.
Cape Cornwall, the only cape in England, is a National Trust landmark with Priests Cove and Cot Valley providing tranquil boulder beaches at low tide.
Sennen Cove in Whitesand Bay, ‘the bay where dolphins play’, has a perfect stretch of golden sandy beach and is ideal for surfing, swimming, sunbathing or just relaxing.
The breath-taking beauty of the rocky outcrop of legendary Land’s End is testament to the power of the Atlantic waves, and is the most westerly point in Britain.
Porthcurno is reached by a lush valley, and has spectacular granite cliffs and a fine sandy beach and has the added delight of the world famous open air Minack Theatre.
Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, venture inland and the countryside continues to delight with granite moorland and an unspoilt patchwork of ancient fields.
During your visit why not browse the wealth of art and craft galleries filled with beautiful work produced by local artists, many items inspired by the coast and countryside of the far West of Cornwall.
