Fill your lungs with good sea air. If in or near St.Just {Cornwall} take a walk or drive to cape cornwall,there you can find some rugged sea scapes and walks but also a pretty decent Cafe/bar. Well worth a detours as this area offers a lot for the outdoor fan.

Cape Cornwall is a funny old place to visit and if your driving even more so. Let me explain. The road from St Just is narrow and windy and if you're not used to driving on Cornish roads you are going to get flustered, angry or upset driving down here. And once you get there unless you are a National... More

Had a lovely morning at Cape Cornwall, the beach and a wander along the coast path to Ballowall Barrow. Got caught out on the rain and there is absolutely nowhere to hide!!

Just a short distance from Land's End is Cape Cornwall, a beautiful unspoiled spot that hasn't been ruined by commercialism. If you've been to the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, it will remind you a bit of it. Lovely area! And the little village of St. Just is adorable. This was the wildly romantic Cornwall we'd come to see.

No commercialism, no tacky gift shops, just rugged countryside and amazing sea views. Cape Cornwall is, I believe, where the Irish Sea and Atlantic Ocean meet. There are plenty of wildlife around, and there are toilet facilities here if required. A stunning place to sit and watch nature at its best.

Magnificent National Trust property with 270-degree ocean views over picturesque fields. Outstanding vistas even before walking up the hill on the easy, well-marked trail. As gorgeous a setting as we have ever seen anywhere.

A beautiful place to visit, with the added treat of a volunteer staffed coastal watch station, which cannot be seen from the car park - you need to walk around the peninsular. The person on watch was so very interesting and helpful. The scenery was beautiful. It is run by the National Trust and is clean, beautiful with good access... More

Cape Cornwall is magnificent! We drove to the National Trust car park (we are NT members so car park was free :) ). The lady taking the car parking fee was wonderful (slightly eccentric but adorable !) It was the 2nd of October but the sun was high in the sky, blue sky and a light breeze! We walked up... More
