Godrevy Towans

Godrevy Towans beach, Cornwall

Godrevy Towans is bounded to the south by the Red River and the north by Godrevy Lighthouse. It effectively marks the northern reach of Hayle Sands.

Northwest facing, Godrevy, like its southwesterly neighbour Gwithian, is popular with surfers and kite fliers and behind the beach lies dunes where it is possible to have picnics.

Sections of the beach, especially near the Red River are quite rocky whilst as you head northeast towards the lighthouse the sand becomes finer. There are a number of rock pools here for the youngsters to explore and fine swimming in the strong surf.

Due to its proximity to the towns of Camborne, Redruth and Hayle the beach can become crowded in Summer but is large enough for early risers to find a place to call their own.
