Attraction Information

The National Trust's Godrevy Head is a sandy, accessible beach surrounded by cliffs. Enjoy miles of spectacular walks over coastal grasslands and heathland to the beach's rear, exploring places such as Hell's Mouth and the North Cliffs.

It's popular with surfers but also good for sandcastles and swimming with summer lifeguard cover. You can also go seal watching or watch guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and cormorants which nest on the steep cliffs.

Immediate vicinity amenities include the Shore Surf School which is beachside on the boardwalk to offer water sport excitement, cafe and seasonal ice cream van.
