What's on

From barefoot walks, beach cleans to surf competitions there's a whole host of events on the coast throughout the year.

Our Facebook page has the low down on what we get up to. Why not post a photo of your favourite spot or activity, we'd love to hear from you.

All around our shores this year we're celebrating our beautiful coast. Why not get involved too?

To check opening times, call them on 01736 757999.

Enjoy and explore

There's so much to see and do around Godrevy, for all ages and at all times of the year. Walk up and around the headland and spot the wildlife, or go swimming, paddling, surfing or rock-pooling.

Find Sallie's ice cream van in the summer months, treat yourself in Godrevy Café or bring your own picnic, find a nice spot and enjoy the views.

Our fragile coast

These days we're all much more aware of how the weather and climate can have a big impact on the places we love. Godrevy has had its fair share of storm damage recently and our ranger and car park team work hard to keep the beach and footpaths open to all.

Why not learn to surf

Pick up the skills you'll need to enjoy the waves on your board

The north Cornish coast is famed for its surfing beaches. Our beach at Godrevy, at the top end of St Ives Bay, gets some great waves and is also a good place to learn.

Shore Surf and GAS are our only two licensed providers who've been in the business for over 10 years.
