Visited here today whilst on a short break in Cornwall. Lovely beach and not too busy on a weekday out of season. Car parking charges are very stiff though with no concessions for blue badge holders which is a little mean. Great beach for dogs BUT beware it is closed to dogs from 01 May - 30 September.

This is a fabulous beach and very near to Lands End, so why not combine the trips. When we went, it was surprisingly clean, very little weed and next to no rubbish. There is a Cafe and Surf School and when the tide is out there's a good shallow area suitable for learners but be warned that the tide does... More

We love this beach and have visited many times in the last 6-7 years. The beach and sea is very clean and is gently sloping so the waves don't get too big for the kids to play in. It's usually pretty reliable for surfing/body boarding and there is a surf school for equipment hire and lessons. The sand is good... More

We arrived at Sennen on Christmas Day just as hundreds of crazed Cornish people ran into the sea for their festive dip. Sennen Cove is a very picturesque part of the south west coast, a couple of miles north of the vulgar abomination that is Land's End. It's a quintessential Cornish fishing village, with its working harbour, thatched cottages, cafes... More

The beach is long and sandy with good swimming area as well as for surfing (which I am no good at). If you did nothing but sun bathe here it is worth the visit. There is also the lifeboat house there that is worth a visit. Word of warning - if your car does not like steep hills park in... More

This was our first time here (my parents took us as they had visited a few years back) and we were not disappointed! The beach is just stunning! We really did feel like we were abroad! We had a lovely walk down the front and then played on the sand as this was only a stop-off from Land's End. A... More

Yet another delightful beach in Cornwall is Sennen Beach. We parked up and it was very windy but managed some lovely photos of this beautiful part of the coast. It's a really lovely stretch of beach and can just imagine how nice this would be on a hot summers day.
