Sennen Cove Beach lies little more than a mile from Lands End in Cornwall, the most westerly point in mainland Britain. It is a long, north west-facing, sandy beach (bookended by areas populated by rock pools), popular with surfers and families alike.

The crescent-shaped beach at Sennen Cove stretches to around a mile in length. At low tide, Gwynver Beach, to the north, can be reached. Lands End may be reached on foot via the scenic South West Coast Path. The Atlantic swells in Whitesand Bay, in which Sennen Cove sits, make it a popular destination for surfers of all standards.

Self catering accommodation in Penwith, west Cornwall is available in Sennen Cove and Lands End holiday cottages. Holiday cottages in Penzance (9 miles from Sennen Cove by road) and St Ives (17 miles) are also recommended.

Access to the beach is suitable for disabled visitors. Ample car parking is available in several car parks in and around the village. Facilities include shops, cafs, art gallery and toilets. A small lifeguard station, which welcomes visitors, is located on the south end of beach. Lifeguards patrol the beach during peak seasons and surf rescue equipment is provided. There is restricted access for dogs on the beach from Easter to October.
