We were lucky enough to see a family of seals in the cove. An adult and three young pups. They are so well camouflaged with the rocks it was tricky to spot them until they moved. We stayed a few minutes watching until the seals...More

Probably the best place to see lots of seals together in Cornwall. BUT they give birth around here and will leave the beach in a panic if disturbed so please use binoculars, keep noise down and your bodies below the skyline (from the seal's beach...More

Wonderful! We saw a couple of seals playing in the waves, then when we walked around the cliff to the left we saw lots of seals (hard to see in the picture though)

Mutton cove is situated very close to Hayle Towans Beach, you could park in the National trust car park-Godrevy to access this site. They charge £3 for non-members. We parked our car further away from the main car park and walked the shore first. It's...More

Drive to the National Trust cafe at Godrevy Point. Have a drink and a sticky bun. Walk to Mutton Cove (10 mins) with a good camera and feast you eyes on the most beautiful colony of seals. Keep quiet and enjoy watching them. Ron Seal...More

Peak Seal is roughly December to March but you could see seals in the cove at any time (they are all over the place in Cornwall - though only in the sea). There'll probably be seals at the end of May - good luck ...and... More
