Sennen Cove Beach has a seasonal dog ban, but just around the corner from it lies Gwynver Beach. The latter is lesser-known, making it quieter and something of a hidden gem. You’ll find plenty of space for your playful pup to let off steam. This glorious sweep of white sand lies in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and benefits from having its own car park. On a clear day, the Isles of Scilly can be seen in the distance.
You can’t go wrong with a coastal walk from Sennen Cove to Land’s End. This iconic trail passes plenty of breath-taking sights, including the shipwreck of RMS Mulheil, which ran aground at Gamper Bay in 2003. From Land’s End, continue around the headland past an ancient cliff castle where you’ll come face to face with one of Cornwall’s most eye-catching rock formations, the Enys Dodnan Arch. The coastal path from here is a true treasure trove. Should you wish to continue walking, and we wouldn’t blame you, you’d eventually come to Nanjizal Beach with its magical Song of the Sea Cave.
