Gwenver Beach



Aerial Gwenver Beach Gwenver Beach
Gwenver Beach is located just under one mile north-east of Sennen Cove.
A superb surfing beach - Gwenver is secluded , probably never gets really crowded , and is an absolute sun trap !
There is a lifeguard service from Spring Bank Holiday to the end of September , daily 10 am to 6pm.
Lovely for swimming on a flat day ..flat days are rare at Gwenver and there can be vicious tide rips when the surf is up - take care.
There is no dog ban - but please keep them under control !
No other facilities ......Stunning Scenery.
Gwenver Car Park TheThere is ample car parking above Gwenver in season (£1) - ideal for visiting the beach , walking the cliffs, or just sitting and admiring the breathtaking views.
(Main Park Gates close 8pm).
Out of season there is a small area which accommodates approximately 10 cars.
A sunset overlooking Gwenver is really an experience not to be missed - be it in high summer or in the depths of winter ! Gwenver Sunset

Access to Gwenver Beach
By Road :- Follow the main A30 northeast out of Sennen ; after one mile - just after the Chapel on the left-hand bend - turn left onto made-up road (dead-end sign) to Tregiffian . Continue on this track (do not veer left) for half a mile until reaching a rough parking area on the right - the main car park is opposite this through a gateway with a quaint circular "toll booth".

By Foot :- The coastal cliff path passes through Gwenver. Best access is to park in Sennen Cove Beach Car Park , leaving a twenty to thirty minute cliff-path walk to Gwenver.

Lat / Long :- 50`05.5 N 5`41.4 W ; NGR 363 - 276
