The Beach Guide

Godrevy Beach

The northen-most tip of Hayle's '3 miles of golden sand' and probably the most dramatic. Owing to it's position Godrevy takes the brunt of the Atlantic swell and is one of the more exposed beaches of the North coast. It is a place of moods ranging from buckets and spades on a sunny summers day to classic rugged Cornish splendour on a stormy winter's day.

Godrevy is connected to Gwithian beach at lower tides to create an impressive stretch of sand. The hundred or so metres of sand all but disappear at high tide so don't get caught out.
The beach terminates with a low rocky headland and  the lighthouse on an island just off the coast. (of Virginia Woolfe's To The Lighthouse fame)

Godrevy is now National Trust Property.
