Cornwall's Best Sunset Spots!

May 20, 2017


So, I guess I thought it would be a good idea to share more of my favourite places and start a new series of blog posts! I'm happy to be starting with my favourite place in the world and somewhere I'm lucky enough to call home – Cornwall! If you think something's missing from the list below, then please leave a comment on my social media pages!


Trevose Head, PL28 8SH


Let's get the obvious one out of the way first shall we? I've said before that it doesn't get much better than Trevose for a spot to watch the sun go down, and I stand by that statement completely! Sure, there's no facilities like toilets or a cafe, but there is the perfect vantage point to look out at the atlantic, fantastic views of the beautiful surrounding beaches and, of course, the incredible lighthouse with crashing waves and rugged rocks beneath it. It costs £4 to park there and that goes to the National Trust, and so, goes to protecting the wildlife and lovely views. 


Widemouth Bay, EX23 0AW


About an hour further up Cornwall's north coast sits Widemouth Bay. Prepare yourself for a beautiful, sandy beach that stretches for miles! Or, if sand isn't your thing, you can watch the sunset from the comfort of your own car in the perfectly positioned car park! Personally, I love this area in general because of the interesting rock formations that can be found at low tide. Just remember to bring your camera when you pay a visit


Perranporth Beach, TR6 0JN


Potentially, Perranporth is another great location for people that wasn't to watch the sun go down from their car. The main car park points in the perfect direction and, if it's full, you can always follow the road on the left side of the beach for more parking. Perranporth is perfect for surfers that want to spend the day in the water to. The same goes for Watergate Bay and Polzeath, but Perranporth wins it for me because of the incredible rock arches in the cliffs and “the UK's only bar on the beach.”


Gwithian Towans Beach, TR27 5BT


For those that enjoy the shelter of a sand dune to watch the sun go down (perhaps with a BBQ or bonfire if dispose of it properly to), then Crantock, Constantine and Holywell Bay are all great options. However, my favourite would have to be Gwithian Towans. For me, it comes out on top because it offers so much more than the superb sand dunes, including Godrevy lighthouse out on it's very own island in all of it's glory


Land's End, TR19 7AA


As the saying goes “last but definitely not least” is Land's End! With it being Britain's most south-westerly point, it had to make the list. Therefore, it should also be on the bucket list of all of Britain's residents. Get a selfie next to the iconic Land's End sign, sip a cold beer or Cornish cider, or simply take in the stellar scenery, incredible cliffs and of course the sunset!
