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. On the island stands the 26 foot high Godrevy Lighthouse – immortalized by Virginia Woolfe in her book ‘To The Lighthouse’. It became fully automatic in the 1930’s and then from 1995 has been fuelled by solar power.

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 while the public are not allowed on their beach to protect them, you can peer over the cliff edge and watch them at play. Guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and cormorants breed on the cliffs and if you own a pair of binoculars you could spend all day watching these creatures swooping about.

The Godrevy Café is a fantastic little place located on the National Trust Car Park at Godrevy Lighthouse. Home made cakes, Sunday Brunches, wraps, salads or a platter of local fish make this café well worth a visit. It is so popular that you may well have to queue on a good surfing day.
