I used to visit this beach when I was a child, although the beach has changes and a nature reserve has been added it still remains beautiful. There are sand dunes, a river, the nature reserve, sand and a stunning beach. Just lovely to be back, I loved, loved, loved it.

Beautiful beach, fantastic views. Our local beach and nowhere in the world I would rather be, lifeguards on duty throughout the summer season.

We arrived just before low tide on a gorgeously warm weekday and practically had the entire beach to ourselves! Enjoyed a long stroll along the water, saw a few jellyfish moving towards shore, and had a relaxing picnic lunch on the sand. A beautiful place to enjoy the sea!

This is a dog friendly beach and it is a short walk from Godrevy Park Caravan Club site. The great expanse of sand is great for spending time with the family or just eating a tasty picnic on the beach, playing football, badminton and tennis. There is a car park but you will get a ticket If you are staying... More

This is a fabulous beach and an area of outstanding beauty, come and spend some time on the beach, or go for a walk to spot the seals and see Godrevy lighthouse. If you are lucky a seal may come in to the edge of the shore as well. Stunning scenery, we can't get enough of this place. You do... More

Visited here on a sunny but windy day, the scenery is amazing. We watched the surfers in the ocean and land surfers. This is a must visit place.

Beware of the National Trust car park. These people are buying up bits of our land and charging us to go where it was once free. In this case it is Godrevy beach. Next door is the Rockpool Cafe, pay to park, but cheaper. Gwithian Beach is am ust visit for a lovely leisurely walk with clear clean rock pools... More
