Gwenver Beach (Cornwall)

  • Information

    Gwenver is secluded and rarely gets crowded. Ideal for visiting the beach and walking along the cliffs as you have excellent breathtaking views. At high tide, the beach slopes steeply into the sea and can be dangerous, at low tide Gwenver joins up with Sennen Beach.

    A superb surfing beach but tide rips can cause problems.

    There is a lifeguard service from Spring Bank Holiday to the end of September, daily 10 am to 6pm.

    Car parking above Gwenver in the season is charged  (Main Park Gates close 8pm) and a 10-15 minute walk to the beach whilst out of season there is a small area which accommodates approximately 10 cars.

    Gwenver Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Gwenver Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
