Sennen, Cornwall, Visitor & Tourism Guide



Quick Links
AONB: Cornwall
Select Towns & Villages: St. Just, St. Ives, Marazion, Botallack, Penzance, Newlyn, Porthleven, Porthcurno, Gweek

Stunning location
A small village* within easy walking distance of Land's End with, in our opinion, one of the finest beaches in Cornwall and the UK.

Sennen Cove Beach
The beach. It's simply magnificent. At its best it looks like something out of the Carribean: white sand and pale blue/turquoise seas against a backdrop of thick, green vegetation. Travelling around the UK, many places produce an involuntary 'wow' reflex and Sennen, from the spacious car park above the village and beach, is one of them.

Part of Whitesand Bay, make sure you explore Gwenver Beach, too.

Local attractions
If you're looking to stretch your legs, follow the South West Coast Path south through National Trust coastline to Land's End. It's a curious place, mixture of extreme natural beauty and commercialism but well worth the walk.

A little further along the coast is the exceptional Porthcurno Beach at Porthcurno. If you have time, take in a performance at Minack Theatre. Visit also the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum 'where the telegraph cables that linked Britain with its Empire and other nations cam ashore'.

To the north of Sennen, we'd recommend you explore this section of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site. Botallack Mine The Crowns Engine Houses is particularly impressive.

To the north east, visit the National Trust's St Michael's Mount in Mount's Bay. To the north, we'd suggest day trips to the beaches of St Ives Bay and to St. Ives itself.

For ease of use, we've combined Sennen and Sennen Cove into one listing. Sennen Cove is down by the sea. Sennen is on the higher ground above.
