CORNISH BEACH IN TOP FIVE BRITISH WINTER BEACH WALKS
9 January 2014
A WALK along cliffs overlooking a Cornish beach has been rated one of the five best British winter beach walks by the UK’s leading travel magazine Condé Nast Traveller.
The walk, from Land’s End to Sennen Cove, has been ranked second in the list and is the ideal length to be explored during a break at luxury holiday cottages in Cornwall.
Sennen, also known as Whitesands, is one of the most westerly beaches on the UK’s mainland.
And Condé Nast writers suggest approaching its long crescent of Atlantic-smoothed silky sand, backed by soft and grassy cliffs, from the South – setting off from Land’s End.
The beach, which is where the Western Union laid its first transatlantic cable in 1881, is a hive of activity in the busy summer months, when tourists flock to Cornwall.
But in winter its beauty is stirring, with crystal clear skies allowing walkers spectacular views and crisp winter air helping provide bracing and invigorating walks.
Sitting just a few miles from the A30 Sennen Cove is easy to reach from Truro, or further afield, and makes for an ideal day out for walkers, whatever the weather.
