A very pleasant walk on a fine day downhill from St. Just with superb seascapes. A friendly lady selling drinks and icecreams in the Cape car-park. I continued along the coastal path/ track to the south uphill, with lucky golfers to my left, until I reached a road again which brought me back to St. Just.

Rugged location on what is supposedly the UK's only Cape. Well worth a visit if only for the bracing walk up to the top. The day we visited it was a clear blue sky as we marched up, by the time we got to the top we could see black rain laden clouds racing towards us which made for a... More

We parked in the car park (free to trust members). Explored the area around the look out station and then headed along the coast Northwards covering an area used in some of the Poldark series shots. Do visit the National Trust Levant mine and beam engine. Lovely walk . Bonus of Cornish Choughs nesting in the area.

Went down to the Cape and was amazed by the view and wonderful landscape. Not easy walking but well worth getting to the top and looking out past the end of England. Also very dramatic seascape and plenty of big waves! Left the top and went down to the little rocky beach which is also very rugged. Spent longer than... More

This is a place of amazing beauty, within a backdrop of Cornish mining heritage. Any time of year, any weather, the landscape speaks for itself. I have visited this location many times over the years and it's a great place for reflection and wonder.

Cape Cornwall and its surrounding coastline is a magical place in good weather so peaceful with breathtaking scenery. If you want to' get away from it all' I recommend the area for great walks. There is also facility to buy drinks and sandwiched at the Cape Cornwall National Trust car park.

Really rouged small scenic bay, no beach though. National Trust car park £3 to park unless you go early like we did. We only stayed 30minutes as not a lot to do, but worth a visit. So dramatic.
