From Cape Cornwall to Sennen Cove is a wonderful walk passing the sand dunes to Whitesands Bay. Honey coloured cliffs prevail and keep your eyes peeled as dolphins are a common sight.  The route follows the dunes but alternatively you can walk on the beach until you reach the little village of Sennen Cove.
