    Sennen Cove Beach Information

    Sennen Cove is in the far west of Cornwall, tucked into the corner of Whitesand bay on the Penwith peninsula. In the summer walk the coast path and experience one of the best sea views possible. In the winter this can show how rough these waters can get.

    A major surfing location but it is also suitable for beginners.

    The spot is suitable for all levels of kiteboarding and windsurfing although beginners should not attempt it when the waves are big. Even at high tide, there is usually a sand bank in the top corner where the experienced can rig, launch and land in safety.

    Selection of parking at both ends of the esplanade and also the hill over the cove, lifeguards in the summer, cafe, toilets.

    Sennen Cove Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
