Dramatic coastline with views over massive rock stacks. This is one of the most popular destinations on the Cornish coast, because of the spectacular clifftop view of rocks stretching into the distance across the sweep of Bedruthan beach (not NT). There are magnificent walks along the coast path between Carnewas and Park Head.

The Trust has rebuilt the cliff staircase down to the beach, but it is unsafe to bathe at any time and visitors need to be aware of the risk of being cut off by the tide.

High cliffs and sheltered coves with sandy beaches. The Trust owns all the coastline from Godrevy to Navax Point.

The main beach below the summer car park connects to Gwithian Beach, forming an impressive sweep of unbroken sand around the edge of St. Ives bay.

Away from the bustle of the beach the coastal grasslands and heathland are rich with wild flowers and provide open access for miles of walking.

Seals are a common sight and guillemot, razorbill, fulmar and cormorant breed on the cliffs.

Dramatic and historic stretch of Cornish coast. The Lizard is the most southerly point of mainland Britain and the turning point of one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. The coastline on either side offers dramatic cliff walks, masses of rare wild flowers and fascinating geological features. The area played a key role in the history of modern communications. Marconi’s historic wireless experiments on The Lizard in 1901 are celebrated at the restored Lizard Wireless Station, Bass Point, and the Marconi Centre at Poldhu. Two miles north of Lizard Point lies Kynance Cove – white sand, turquoise water and islands of multi-coloured serpentine rock with stacks and arches hidden amongst the towering cliffs – long considered one of the most beautiful places in Cornwall.
