The road from St Just is narrow, twisty and steep with few places for passing other vehicles ( not too good for Mobile Homes!!) but it is worth persevering to get to the NT Car Park. The walk from the Car Park to the Cape...More

Simply a beautiful and peaceful location on the edge of the sea. Sit on the beach and watch the tide in and out as the sea birds fly around and fish.

Amazing views both out to sea and inland. It's a short walk from the car park to the headland and well worth the climb to the monument. Just a small tip here - don't follow either of the two main paths to the monument, keep...More

Sea and sky and stunning landscapes. Full of ancient history and mining.Be sure to visit with a pasty in one hand.

We visited here recently, what a lovely place. Unspoilt, away from the masses and great beach. Country lanes are very narrow, we got several mark on our car due to overgrown bushes though. Good for families as beach only, no shops or anything.

It depends, I guess, which part you walk, and the children. The area around Kenidjack castle (ruin) has a path that is slightly inland...but with ocean views....walking toward the ruined mines and Botallack.....right up to... More
