Cornwall Beach Guide

Godrevy Cove Beach

Godrevy Cove is a large sandy cove on the east side of the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall. The beach is usually quiet as access is only via the coast path. At the north of Godrevy Cove, there is an area of rocks and beyond the rocks there is a small sandy cove called Leggan Cove. Note, in 2023 the coast path from Rosenithon to Godrevy Cove was closed for repairs.
No details available. See Beach Safety Guide.
Access is by walking the coast path from the Porthoustock car park, taking about 30 minutes to walk. Note that the coast path is partly on lanes and is steep in places.
Dogs allowed all year.
The nearest car park to Godrevy Cove is at Porthoustock which is approximately 13 miles from Helston. Approach Helston on the A394 from the east or west. Alternatively drive to Redruth on the A30 and at Redruth take the B3297 to Helston. At Helston follow the A3083 to Lizard. About 2 miles after Helston, just after Culdrose Airfield, turn left onto the B3293 (signposted to St Keverne). Continue on the B3293 for about 8 to 9 miles until St Keverne. Drive through St Keverne and continue on this road for about a mile until Porthoustock. There is a car park on the beach at Porthoustock. From Porthoustock take the coast path south, note that the coast path is on lanes to the hamlet of Rosenithon (follow signs for "Coast Path Inland Route"). At Rosenithon turn left by the letterbox in the wall and follow this lane to reach the coast. Note that in 2023, the path from Rosenithon to the coast was closed for repairs due to "surface erosion".
