Mutton Cove, Cornwall


  • Located in Gwithian, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Stand on the cliffs above Mutton Cove at the eastern end of St Ives Bay and, with a bit of luck, you should be able to see a colony of grey seals* on the low tide sand and rock beach below
  • There's a National Trust car park and checkpoint by Godrevy Towans. From that National Trust checkpoint, you can also follow the road by car and park in a large field by Godrevy Point. Zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting of the accompanying Google map to see these features. From one of these car parks, follow the South West Coast Path and you come to cliffs that offer views down to Mutton Cove. Whenever we've visited there has been a crowd of people watching
  • This area of Cornwall is home to other grey seal colonies. West of St Ives is Seal Island or The Western Carrack. Boat trips leave from St Ives Harbour enabling you to 'enjoy the stunning views of Cornwall's Atlantic Coast on this 1 hr., 4 mile trip to the Westward to visit this colony of Grey Atlantic Seals'. (Source: information board in St Ives)
  • One of the most extraordinary experiences we've had in South West England was listening to a colony of grey seals calling on Lundy Island. The sound is remarkable
  • *We've also seen grey seals written as Grey Atlantic Seals and Atlantic grey seals
