St Gothian Sands Nature Reserve, Cornwall


  • Located in Gwithian, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • St Gothian Sands Nature Reserve is a local nature reserve located behind Gwithian Beach at the eastern end of St Ives Bay. The National Trust's Godrevy is to the east. Godrevy Island and Lighthouse are out at sea
  • When we first started photographing St Ives Bay, the land which is now occupied by St Gothian Sands Nature Reserve was described as 'PRIVATE LAND WORKING QUARRY'. The area was once used to quarry sand for commercial use. In recent years, it has been converted into a local nature reserve in keeping with its natural beauty and importance to the local tourist economy
  • There are car parks at Gwithian and Godrevy from which you can explore St Gothian Sands Nature Reserve. Clearly, you can also walk in on the South West Coast Path or along the beach. We've positioned St Gothian Sands Nature Reserve on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location. The car parks to which we refer are visible on that satellite imagery
  • 'St Gothian Sands Local Nature Reserve. The wetland has been fenced to protect wildlife and to provide a safe haven for breeding birds.' (Source: information board on site)
  • Nearby nature reserves include Upton Towans Nature Reserve and Hayle Estuary RSPB Nature Reserve
