Good carparks (Small charge... More

Visited today. What a beautiful place. I expect in the summer it is a nightmare with narrow streets I enjoyed the views the few craft shops and the restaurants.

Favorite of local surfers. Beautiful beach to sunbathe or walk along. Easy walk from Land's end and able to catch buses here to Penzance or st. Ives.

We used this as a base for a coastal walk and were impressed with the facilities, relatively cheap car parking and scenery. The fishing village is not as quaint as other Cornish locations, but provides and interesting feature to the area.

Beautiful beach. Excellent location. Here in winter so lovely and peaceful. I'm sure the height of Summer would be a very different story. Narrow road in and out. But park here and walk 1 mile coastal walk to Land's End.... Well worth it. £4.90 for all day parking. Refreshments available. 🏄

We had a beautiful day out at the beach here but be careful if you have young kids and particularly a buggy, its a nightmare getting on and off the sand. The path doesnt quite make it down to the band and you than have to negotiate a rocky road to the sand. If your brave enough its worth it... More

Not the most attractive fishing village in west Cornwall like Mousehole or Newlyn but well worth a visit. Parking was available by the sandy beach as well as the at the end of the road which runs through the harbour, carry on past the RNLI station on your right to get to the far most car park. You can go... More

Stopped here for the day on our mini motorhome trip and it is beautiful. You can easily forget the wonderful places we have in the UK.
