There is still a lifeboat station at Sennen and close by there are lobster pots testifying to the continuation of the local fishing industry. Sennen Cove harbour has an old wooden building that houses the original ropes and windlass for hauling boats out of the water. The harbour supports a small fleet of commercial fishing boats, plus some pleasure boats. The largest boat is 5 meters. There is an electric winch to haul the boats across the beach and onto the slipway depending on the tides.

The Round House and Capstan gallery is a 19th century building with a converted net loft and can be found just beyond the lifeboat station, it hosts paintings, photography, sculpture and ceramic pieces by local artists. The gallery is open every day from 10am to 5pm.

Sennen Cove is very close to Landís End and is well placed for walks along the coastal path. There are numerous ancient sites in the area in addition to relics from the once thriving tin mining industry.
