The UK's most south westerly town
The UK's most south westerly town, St Just is close to St. Ives on The Land's End Peninsula (The Penwith Peninsula). To the east are Mousehole, Penzance and Newlyn. To the south are Sennen, Land's End and Porthcurno. Inland, on the windswept moors are granite outcrops and prehistoric sites.

Lined with pubs, hotels and shops, St Just's spacious centre is by St Just in Penwith Church. The church has a fascinating history so after a pint or fish and chips, we'd recommend a visit.

The small town is a great base from which to explore some of the sites of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site. We'd recommend Botallack Mine The Crowns Engine Houses and Levant Mine and Beam Engine. Try Geevor Tin Mine, too.

South West Coast Path
The best way, in our opinion, to explore theses UNESCO World Heritage Sites is on the South West Coast Path. Walk to Cape Cornwall. From there, head north to Botallack Mine The Crowns Engine Houses (by Botallack) or south to the gorgeous Whitesand Bay and Sennen Cove Beach. Further along the coast is Land's End, England's most westerly point.

Beaches
As you would expect, there are some cracking beaches in the area. Visit Gwenver Beach and Sennen Cove Beach, Portheras Cove and Porthcurno Beach. To the north east, try the beaches of St Ives Bay. We'd recommend Gwithian Beach and Carbis Bay Beach, St Ives Harbour & Beach and Hayle Beach.

To the east, there's a vast arc of sand lining Mount's Bay.

Local attractions
In addition to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and glorious beaches of The Land's End Peninsula (The Penwith Peninsula), visit Minack Theatre, Land's End's (curious) visitor attraction, Mousehole Harbour and Tate St Ives. A trip to St Michael's Mount is a must.

Day trips
St Just is on The Land's End Peninsula (The Penwith Peninsula). This is the most south westerly area of Cornwall. Head east to explore Lizard Point on The Lizard Peninsula. We'd also suggest day trips to Helford and the estuary there as well as the Falmouth/St. Mawes area.

To the north east, the massive Atlantic Perran Beach is superb as are the beaches around Newquay. Try the Camel Estuary area as well.
