Situated just around the corner from Land's End is one of Cornwall's finest stretches of sand, Sennen cove. The beach itself isn't really a cove at all, it is a wide open expanse of golden sand backing onto sand dunes and craggy hillsides. At one end of the beach is the little village of Sennen with its quaint harbour. Heading in the opposite direction the beach gets gradually wilder, more windswept and the waves bigger as you move out of the shelter of the protective headland.
As well as being a very family-friendly beach that frequently receives the coveted Blue Flag award, Sennen is also renown as one of Cornwall's best surf spots. The surf here can be great and if you aren't already any good it's a great place to learn with the local surf schools.
