  • Gwithian / Godrevy beach is one of the best stretches of golden sand in Cornwall and is popular with both families and surfers. Located at the end of the long Hayle beach, within St Ives Bay, at low tide the two beaches are joined together. The area (sand dunes and grassland) behind the beach is owned by the National Trust.

    The beach is also used for kite buggiers, kite surfing, and windsurfers as there is a large expanse of sand at low tide.

    Need to be careful of falling rocks by the cliffs.

    Some good walks through the coastal grassland and heath land.

    Gwithian and Godrevy Beach has dog restrictions. Dogs are banned on this beach from 1st May - 30th September between 8am and 7pm.

      Wonderful beach for exploring and surfing.
      This is just what you want for a family beach. Great dunes, great surf, rocks to explore and miles of sand.
