Surfing Beaches

Sennen Cove Cornwall is a picturesque fishing village with breathtaking views out to the Atlantic Ocean – a beautiful destination situated on Cornwall’s South Western tip with a glorious golden sandy beach. It is very exposed to the Atlantic Ocean and so gets the brunt of any swell coming. Sennen Cove is known as one of the most consistent surf spots in the UK. If there are waves to be caught they will be at Sennen.

The South end of Sennen is perfect for beginners as it is sheltered by the break water and the waves are less steep with less power. The North End of the beach collects more swell and offers more power for more advanced surfers.

Smart Surf School is based at Sennen and offer group and private surf lessons for beginners through to advanced. Smart Surf’s instructors are some of the UK’s top surfers and highly experienced beach lifeguards. Click for more information on Smart Surf School.

Sennen beach is very popular with local and visiting tourists due to it’s beauty and the regularity of the surf.
When it is good waves at the north end can reach up to six foot high. At the south end the sandbar creates smaller faster waves. Beware of the odd rip.

There are good facilities with a car park overlooking the beach (although in busy times the overflow car park is a steep walk down hill), a beach cafe and restaurant, surf and beach paraphernalia hire and toilets. Lifeguarded over summer months. Dog ban (including harbour) 1st May to 30 September 8am – 7pm
