Gwithian and Godrevy Beach
Gwithian / Godrevy beach is one of the best stretches of golden sand in Cornwall and is popular with both families and surfers. Located at the end of the long Hayle beach, within St Ives Bay, these two beaches are joined together at low tide. The area of sand dunes and grassland located behind the beach is owned by the National Trust.
The beach is also used for kite buggies, kite surfing, and windsurfers as there is a large expanse of sand at low tide.
Some good walks through the coastal grassland and heathland and you need to be careful of falling rocks by the cliffs.
Facilities at the beach include toilets, cafes, tea room, surfboard hire, seasonal lifeguard cover and first aid. There is also a free car park 10 minutes walk away if you prefer not to pay for the one at the beach.
The small Cornish village of Gwithian is about half a mile and has small shops, pub and cream teas.
