    Beach or Harbour?

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sennen Cove has two spectrums, one, a working harbour and two, a lovely sandy beach. It really depends what you are looking for.

    To go to the beach, take the first car park on the right as you approach the village. Be warned that there is a bit of hike to get to the beach from here. For the Harbour car park, follow the road as far as it goes. The road narrows drastically and you have to be wary of on-coming traffic but stick with it and you will get there. Current price (as of October 2007) for the harbour car park is £2 for 3 hours.

    My personal favorite is to park in the Harbour for a couple of hours and wander up the hill via the coastal path to get views of the coast back to Lands End or look out to the Wolf Rock Light House 7 miles away or perhaps, across to Cape Cornwall. You may also see basking sharks, down in the Alantic below. If you are not up to walking the coastal path, then take a wander amongst the few shops and cafe's. A couple of interesting places are the RNLi shop, where you can can view the lifeboat, or wander around the wheelhouse gallery. The wheelhouse is interesting in that it holds a huge capstan wheel that used to be used to haul the boats up the harbour slip way and has many local craft items.

    Walk to Land's End

    If you are feeling energetic, and staying in the Sennen area, try walking to Land's End. It's a pleasant walk filled with nice views and it's also satisfying to get out in the fresh ocean air and stretch your legs a bit. Just ask one of the locals for directions so you don't get lost.
