Cornwall Beach Guide

Gwynver Beach

Gwynver Beach is a scenic white sand beach just north of Sennen Cove. Gwynver Beach is a really nice beach, which can be surfed, but there are no facilities and the path down is very steep. At low tide the sand stretches south to Sennen Cove.
Lifeguards in summer. Signs warn of strong rip currents, large breaking waves and not to use inflatables when windy. Also risk of falling rocks from the cliffs. See Beach Safety Guide.
There is a very steep path from the car park to the beach, taking about 10 minutes to walk.
Dogs allowed all year at Gwynver Beach.
Gwynver Beach is close to Sennen Cove, which is about 9 miles from Penzance. Follow the A30 around the outskirts of Penzance, then follow the A30 to Sennen Cove and Lands End. About a mile before the turning to Sennen Cove, take a right turning for the Gwynver car park. Note that this turning is not signposted to Gwynver, but there is a sign post to Tregiffian Farm. Follow this road for about a mile to the Gwynver Beach car park. You can also park at Sennen Cove and walk the coast path to Gwynver Beach.
