Just 9 miles from Penzance , Sennen Cove has a wide sandy beach which is popular with surfers and families. At low tide the beach stretches from Sennen Cove to Gwynver Beach. The South West Coast Path continues and can be walked south to Lands End for spectacular coastal views. Sennen Cove offers not only beauty and abounding scenic views, but also legends of treachery and ghosts. The most well known ghost resides at the First & Last Inn. This is one of the most famous inns in Cornwall, built about seven centuries ago and gaining a notorious reputation when it was known to be the headquarters of smugglers and wreckers.
