After camping at Trevedra Farm Campsite for the night and waking up in the rain we weren’t too sure about whether to head to Sennen Cove or not. However as we put the tent away and had breakfast the skies lightened and the sun came out more.
We made our way to Sennen – a mere 5 minute drive and parked up in the Harbour Car Park. We decided to park here purely based on price – it was a pound cheaper than the alternative beach car park – every penny counts! I think it was a good move as it wasn’t too busy and we found a parking space easily. It also meant we could walk past the moored boats and stop off at the Sennen Cove Lifeboat Station on the way. The lifeboat centre is only small but free to enter and worth a quick look to see the huge lifeboat ready for action should anyone unfortunately need it. There’s a few cafe’s, a local shop and fish and chip take away here too. It has a nice atmosphere which we liked.
We made our way along to the beach – it’s a long sandy beach, otherwise known as Whitesands Bay which is a known hot spot for surfing. You can get a good view of the beach as you walk from the car park and the view is lovely. We walked through the yellow soft sand and jumped over various rock pools where children were looking for crabs.
We took a seat on one of the many large rocks and admired the view whilst deciding which beach to visit next! There is so many to choose from it’s hard to know which ones to prioritise!
