Go to Sennen, parking on the beach. For Gwenvor paddle round the rocks at the North end of the beach.... Paddling around the rocks is NOT advised! There are some pretty heavy rips and if your caught in a big set those little swines arn't very forgiving.

Great place in the Summer, picks up even the slightist ripple in the Atlantic. Gwenvor is a beach at the North of Sennen. This Must pick up the most swell in Cornwall. Watch out for strong rips on a decent swell. Both beaches are lifegaurd patrolled in the summer. Heavy beach break when big so watch your boards when coming in! One of the few waves in England where you can actually have a descent hollow wave without nailing yourself on a reef!
Best place in the Summer. However very very very crowded in peak season. Has some of the best waves in England

Sennen Cove - The place sucks. Beachguards designate the surf area and usually there are no waves in that area. Don't even think of going there. waste of time and money. Waves break like 10 meters from the beach.
