Visit Godrevy Beach

Godrevy Beach is a sandy stretch of beach, a favourite with families and a popular surfing destination, with a seaside cafe on the sea-front.

One of Cornwall’s top surfing beaches, there are fabulous panoramic coastal views including the Godrevy Lighthouse, a well known landmark.

Did you Know? Godrevy Lighthouse was built in 1859, and made famous by Virginia Woolf and her novel ‘The Lighthouse’.

If you are lucky, you may catch sight of the local seal population. Look out for them basking in the sun or popping their heads out of the water.
