Totally unspoiled scenery . Just wander around the beaches. Watch the old guys teaching children how to fish. Where the best areas and pools are. We talked to these guys and learnt about the history.

Really great place to visit. Splendid views of St Ives bay and around the bay towards Hayle Towans and Godrevy itself. Miss this and you’ll miss out on a great place too!

Saw porpoise from here and was mesmerized by the waves. Just sit here and forget the rest of the world for a couple of hours.

I have never seen a seal in its natural habitat. Met a local on portreath beach and told us to give Godrevy a go. We did not appreciate how big the area was so parked in the lower car park. Lovely walk (20mins) to wear...More

Sorry - I hadn’t noticed this question and I cannot answer it as I don’t do fishing! I think you’d find it to be at least ok though, either from the shore of maybe off the rocks.
