Godrevy Beach

Description:
Godrevy Beach is a sandy beach stretching from Gwithian Towans along the Godrevy coastline up to Godrevy Point. On Godrevy Beach there are many rocky sections but also many good sandy patches. The coastline here is run by the National Trust. There are excellent views to Godrevy Island and across St Ives Bay on a clear day and there is also good walking around Godrevy Point.
Safety:
National Trust signs warn of strong under currents, not to swim and unstable cliffs. There is also a risk of being cut off by the tide. See Beach Safety Guide.
