Cornwall Surfing: Surfing in Sennen Cove
Sennen Cove Beach is a mecca for surfers with it being one of, if not the most popular surf beaches in the country. With high-quality waves peeling all the way up the beach from Sennen Cove to Gwenver, it's easy to see why sennen surfing holidays are growing in popularity. The Sennen Cove Beach is situated in North Cornwall, at the most westerly point of mainland Britain, and is therefore exposed to the full force of Atlantic swells. This results in some of the best waves in the country and swells to match most north coast beaches, which attracts surfers from all over the world.
Suitable for all levels of ability
Whatever your standard you can enjoy a number of beaches in Cornwall – beginner, intermediate or advanced – you can enjoy the waves on this beautiful sandy beach. Sennen Cove is regarded as one of the best beaches in Cornwall. Not only do you have high-quality waves and a beautiful sandy beach but the water would not look out of place wrapped around a Fijian Island! It is unbelievably clean and clear. Sennen Surf holidays are popular for surfers, bodyboarders, longboarders, knee boarders, kayakers and paddle boarders. If you are a beginner you will enjoy the long, gentle waves that roll in at the south end of the beach. They are perfect to learn on and with plenty of space, you won’t be getting in anyone’s way. For the bigger waves head north up the beach where the waves tend to be bigger and more consistent.

Sennen surfing conditions vary according to time and tide but waves can be found for all abilities whether novice, intermediate, or expert.
Don’t worry, if surf boarding 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 bodyboarding will be exciting enough for some.
