The northern end of Hayle’s “3 miles of golden sand” and probably the most spectacular. Due to its position, Godrevy takes the worst part of the Atlantic swell and is one of the most exposed beaches on the north coast. It is a place of moods ranging from buckets and shovels on a sunny summer day to the classic splendor of Cornwall on a stormy winter day.
Godrevy is connected to Gwithian beach at low tides to create an impressive stretch of sand. The hundred meters of sand almost disappear at high tide, so do not get caught. The beach ends with a low rocky promontory and the lighthouse on an island near the coast. (From the fame of Virginia Woolfe to the lighthouse)
Godrevy is now owned by national trust.
