  • Godrevy is an exposed, sandy beach at the very northern end of Hayle’s “Three miles of golden sand”. It is not clear where Godrevy beach starts and Gwithian ends but I have been reliably informed it is at Gillick Rock. Other people say it is to the north of where the Red River runs into the sea.

    Where ever the beach starts and finishes it is wonderful stretch of flat sand. As you head further north there are a couple of more secluded coves separated by rocks at high tide. These are always quieter than the main area of sand.

    Wild, windy and immensely popular with surfers, there is ample parking in a National Trust car park behind the beach.
