From Sennen Cove, either direction is a good choice for an afternoon stroll. South in the direction of Porthcurno, passing Land’s End is the easier of the two options. Or north up past Whitesands and to the smaller Gwynver Beach, popular with surfers, dogs and those who want to avoid the crowds. If your feeling adventurous you can continue north past Gwyner Beach towards Cape Cornwall and the neighbouring village of St Just. Whichever way you go, the South West Coast Path along the Penwith Heritage Coast is a walker’s dream.
On Tuesday morning's Sennen village hosts their weekly Farmers Market in the community hall. Showcasing the best of locally grown produce, freshly made food and handmade arts and crafts, perfect for filling up the picnic basket before heading to the beach. After a day at the beach a trip to the 190 Degrees West fish and chip shop at the top of the village is a must!
Just a short drive from Sennen is the dog friendly Gurnard’s Head, a dining pub with outstanding views. Their short, fresh and seasonal menu changes every day and others something for everyone.
