Gwenver Beach

Gwenver beach is a beautiful secluded beach on the Western tip of Cornwall near Land’s End. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty the beach offers spectacular panoramic views and has a sense of tranquility for a peaceful ‘desert island’ style day by the sea.

Located just around the corner from the popular Sennen Cove, Gwenver’s ‘trickier’ accessibility (a steep walk down from the car park at top of the cliffs) means it stays relatively quiet and is a favourite with locals.

A lifeguard service operates on Gwenver beach during the summer months, but with no other facilities on the beach, it’s more suited for the die-hard beach lover that’s content with it’s natural beauty.
