A most beautiful place to visit. Amazing views over wild seas on this National Trust unspoilt part of Cornwall where Time stands still. Fantastic walks around this magical place.

This is picturesque Cornwall at its best as it gives you the great coastal views when you drive along this area at the end of the county and dropping into the sea

You pass Carn Gluze Neolithic burial site, mine shafts, dinosaur egg beach (Porth Nanven) and there's some breathtaking cliff walking. Managed around 4 miles there and back in an afternoon at a...

We watched the sun set here the waves were huge the sky vast and clear and the light was amazing a beautiful way to end the day and a beautiful end to our country! Toilets, national trust car park, tea wagon in the... More

A very magic place. We got the information from a Bar Tender in St.Just and were super happy that we didn't miss to visit the place. Saw some surfers and some seals ;)

We had a short visit to the headland just as the sun was setting and the views over the North Atlantic were breath taking. Whilst care has to be taken on the minor roads, the drive from adjacent St Just is thoroughly worthwhile.
