Sennen Cove

Approaching the end of the A30 the pace slows and you enter an area that seems to have changed little over the years. It was here that indelible images of pure white sand and blue tubes took me down the surf photographer's pathway. Sennen on the southwest tip of Cornwall is where Land and Ocean meet.

This part of the U.K is an open window to the Atlantic swells; from Iceland to The Azores . Here you can have the best of both worlds; South to Penzance there are sheltered coves, accessible at low tide while on the North coast the surf is all year round with some great shorebreaks.
