Arriving on a windy but bright day in June last year, thankfully there were not too many persons around so I could enjoy the view on my own. I walked to Cape Cornwall having parked further away. Don't forget to take your camera. Walking away from the Cape near to a cove, I spotted a seal or two playing in... More

The majesty of the landscape is unforgettableso don't forget your camera! It always seems to be blowing a gale, so again be prepared. The cliff walks I am told are fantastic but are I suspect for serious walkers. The Golf Club is nearby where one is always warmly welcomed, and delicious refreshment can be obtained

So much more so than at Land's End, which is horribly commercialised. As a local, I hate it that Land's End has been so tarnished with an eyesore so out of keeping with the wonderful scenery there - that 'attraction' there should be bulldozed IMO. So come here instead for a sense of what LE should be like - and... More

Enjoyed our first visit so much we went back again so that was twice in one week. We had perfect weather which may have helped but the view and location were stunning The local town of St Just is fine for stopping at for a meal or supplies a well

Another gem in Cornwall.The village of St.Just deserves a wander around and contribute to the economy.Then down the lane Cape Cornwall in all its seasons and splendour awaits you.You can do various short walks around,continue on the coast path,or have cup of tea from enterprising van and continue on exploring.We saw seals in bay bobbing around on mass.

Great place to visit for a couple of hours. Free parking for National trust members, toilets and refreshments available and you can swim in the small cove although there are no lifeguards. Highly recommended.

Found this quite by chance as driving through St. Just which itself is a very quaint Cornish town and was so glad we stumbled across it. Watched the sun set from the highest point and just enjoyed the scenery which was quite stunning and to relax and enjoy it very therapeutic! Much prefer this to Lands End.
