Nanjizal Beach2

Also known as Mill Bay, Nanjizal isn't far from Sennen Cove but due to it's relative inaccessability, it is normally a lot quieter than most beaches in the west Cornwall area.


There is some lovely sand when the tide is out, although also many rocks and boulders too (much of the sand here was washed away in a storm). The most prominent feature of the delightful Nanjizal beach is the chasm of Zawn Peggy in the cliffs....a natural wonder just waiting to be explored.



Nanjizal is located between Sennen and Porthcurno, turn off the B3315 near Trethewey - there is NO PARKING available though, so you're better off using the coastpath.
