About Gwithian

Gwithian has a beautiful white sandy beach with frothy Atlantic rollers which act as a magnet for surfers, for this is one of Cornwall's top surfing spots.

In medieval times this was a popular settlement area, more latterly mines were of importance, these have now gone or are preserved as museum pieces, the area is now largely dependant upon tourism for its livelihood.

The beach stretches for more than three miles, it runs from Porth Kidney Sands to Godrevy Point. The beach is backed mostly by dunes, above which runs the North Cornwall Coastal Path. It is a beautiful area with stunning coastal cliff scenery.

Gwithian village is quite picturesque, it has thatched cottages, a church adorned with graceful pinnacles and an inn. It offers a variety of accommodation including a near-by camp site which is particularly appealing to families.

St. Ives is within easy reach, so to are the attractions of the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden, St.Michaels Mount, Land's End and the Lizard Peninsula.
