Discover the Wildlife

Just a 15 minute walk from Tregenna you can find some fantastic rock pools at some of the most stunning beaches in the country.  All are teeming with animals from starfish, urchins, fish, crabs and so much more. It's also not uncommon to be sitting on the beach and to spot a pod of dolphins and the occasional basking shark.  Take a guided boat tour from St. Ives harbour to Godrevy Point and you are most likely to spot lots of grey seals basking in the sun as well as an array of birds including puffins, Rock Pipits, Guillemots and more.

Local Walking Routes

St Ives To Zennor

This popular Cornwall walk follows the South West Coast Path along rocky cliffs from the harbour town of St Ives to the historic village of Zennor.

This walk is only for experienced walkers and will take 3 to 4 hours to complete as although the first half of the walk is more moderate along the cliff path, some of the walk and in particular the later parts are more difficult, with the path rising steeply from the coves to the cliffs, and with a few rocks to be navigated across here and there. However it is well worth the effort as the views are spectacular and the walk is rich in wildlife and historical interest, taking you to areas of the coast that are not normally accessible by any other means.
