…..watch the sunset,clear your mind and breathe in the fresh air. Guaranteed to sleep well afterward! Unspoilt beauty, the way that Lands End should be! There are some lovely coastal walks too.

Please don’t tell anybody about this place! I would swap Land’s End for Cape Cornwall thousands of times. Peace, breathtaking views, stunning landscape, great walks, the ocean breeze, free parking, …….. what else? An unspoilt beauty.

Free to park if you are a National Trust member, worth the climb to the top of the hill but there is a steep and a less steep way up. Great for scrambling on the rocks around the cape.

cracking bit of coast. Amazing views, great coastal walking, great birdwatching, National Trust car park free to members. Van in the car park selling home made cake and proper Cornish ice cream. We spotted seals and kestrel and chough, we missed dolphins half an hour before we arrived. The coastguard hut has great views all around and provided a welcome... More

Cape Cornwall is one of our favourite places to go after tea when we are camping near St Just.. The attendants have gone home and the car park is empty save for a few like minded souls who have come to climb the headland and admire the fabulous views. Looking out West across the Atlantic or North along the cliffs... More

Almost always quiet. National trust car park. Excellent refreshment van with home made cakes and proper tea in china mugs. Great views, nice walks, interesting history. Visit the coast guard hut and chat to friendly volunteers.

The walk from Cape Cornwall Hotel to the Cape itself is around 15 minutes and a great workout. Once there, the view is unrivalled. Lands End has become such a tourist trap and this was peaceful, tranquil and stunning!

I'm so glad we made the effort to get to this beautiful place. The views are fantastic. Ditch the completely commercialised Lands End and head here!

Visited Cape Cornwall yesterday and although not my first time there, the views still take your breath away. I was lucky with the weather so made the most of it by sunbathing. Had lunch there bought at Apples Kiosk, very reasonable, very good, and served with a smile. Lots of people were on the small beach and there is a... More
