Godrevy Lighthouse in St Ives
Thought to be the inspiration for Virginia Woolf’s “To the Lighthouse”, Godrevy Lighthouse stands 26 meters high and is one of the coast’s most famous landmarks.
Our Easterly trip across the bay in the direction of Newquay offers views of Porthminster and Carbis Bay beaches before passing the long, sandy shores of Hayle Towans towards Gwithian and Godrevy.
Along the way keep lookout for the local wildlife. Dolphin sightings have become more frequent as both common and bottlenose dolphins pass the bay. A wide array of sea birds are seen and less often sharks and even whales are spotted.
The Lighthouse, built in the late 1850’s hosts a colony of Atlantic gray seals and a fascinating history we explore during our approximate 15 minute stay.
The trip is suitable for all ages and our one hour trip costs £14 for adults, £10 for under 16s and dogs go free!
