Godrevy Beach is the most picturesque of several beaches situated within a 3-mile stretch of ‘golden sands’ where the Hayle estuary meets St Ives Bay, Godrevy is a popular surfing beach thanks to its’ exposed position in St Ives Bay, experiencing Atlantic tidal swells.
The large expanse of golden sand at low tide makes Godrevy a popular destination with holiday-makers, horse-riders and kite surfers. At low tide, the adjacent Gwithian beach may also be reached by foot, but particular attention should be paid to the incoming tide, which covers most of the beaches at high tide.
From the beach at Godrevy there are fine views of Godrevy Lighthouse, situated on a rocky island just off the mainland, and St Ives Bay. The National Trust’s coastal path runs through grassland and heath land at the rear of the beach. Access to the beach is via steps from the car park. During the summer lifeguards patrol the beach and dogs are not permitted.
