A vast sandy beach, high cliffs and dramatic coves

Godrevy's awe-inspiring expanse of sandy beach leads on to wildlife rich headlands and the dramatic coves of the North Cliffs and Western Hill.

Set at the far end of St Ives Bay, Godrevy beach is popular for surfers, families, walkers, nature watchers and those who simply want to sit and admire the view.

Stretch your legs with our downloadable walk over coastal grasslands and heathland. Delve into the history of the area as you walk around the headland, peer down Hell's Mouth and watch birds soaring over secret coves along the North Cliffs.

Find out more about our year long coastal festival, celebrating 50 years of the Neptune campaign.

‘Bio’ means ‘life’ and ‘Blitz’ means ‘to do something quickly and intensively’. Together they make ‘BioBlitz’, a collaborative race against the clock to discover as many species of plants, animals and fungi as possible - and all within 24 hours.

In June we gathered together scientists, naturalists, volunteers, visitors and rangers who spent 24 hours seeing just what we've got at Godrevy.

We hoped to get 500 species and were amazed that we reached 537. You can see more photos from the day on our Facebook pages.

What will you see?
