Surfing Sennen

Things to Do in Sennen Cornwall


Your Holiday Cottage in Sennen Cornwall by the Sea in Vellandreath Valley has one of natures best playgrounds right on its doorstep: the beach.

Of course where there’s a beach there’s the the sea and in our case we have the Atlantic Ocean brushed by the Gulf Stream.

Whitesands Bay, Sennen is a Blue Flag beach and is well known for its quality surf, rich in surf history and folk lore.

The conditions vary according to time and tide but waves can be found for all abilities whether novice, intermediate or expert.

Don’t worry, if surfing is not for you then one can always take advantage of the sheltered end of the bay and swim between the lifeguard’s red and yellow bathing flags when the waves are up.

Children have an absolute ball in the surf and the local surf schools offer great coaching to get them up and riding the rollers though of course just frolicking in the waves and body boarding will be excitement enough for some.

If you’ve already got the surfing bug then this is the perfect place for you. If you’ve yet to try surfing then, in our opinion, there’s no better place to start…
