This is a very simple walk to take in some stunning views. The lighthouse is matched by the seal colony. If you are lucky the seals will be on form.

Lovely walk easy rise to overlook the beaches and coves below. One was full of seals basking in the sun. National Trust car park with cafe and toilets on site. Well worth a visit.

Stunning views after stunning views. Heaven on earth. What a way to amble away the day. Great way to see the native wildlife.

The main car park can be busy due to the surfers but beyond the National Trust check in there are further car parks a short drive towards Godrevy Head. The walking is excellent and not onerous, take advice from the NT staff.

I walked from Hayle to Godrevy. The sand is very soft and hard going in places, but worth it for the stunning scenery as you approach the headland.
