Walk - Godrevy Island & The Knavocks
3.3 miles (5.3 km)
Gwithian National Trust car park - TR27 5ED Gwithian NT car park
Moderate - A good level path for much of the way, with some short sections of ascent and descent.
A high-cliff walk from Gwithian car park, above the lighthouse featured in Virginia Woolf's classic novel and on around The Knavocks. There are spectacular views right around St Ives Bay, with its long sandy beaches backed by the Towans (dunes), and in summer the cliffs are fringed with wildflowers and rowdy with nesting seabirds. Look out for seals at Navax Point, where as many as 70 are sometimes spotted hauled out together on the rocks below.
