We sat with blueberry ice creams, in the warm sun, looking down at the cove and up to the cape itself, the sun was a brilliant blue, the cliffs covered in wild flowers - nothing can beat this wonderful spot. Thank goodness for the Heinz company who, some years ago, bought the cape and donated it to the National Trust, thus saving it from becoming a dreaded 'Tourist Attraction'. The walks around are second to none and Apples Kitchen is a must for refreshments. For those less fit, it is possible to drive down and just enjoy the views. Do not miss coming here.

Our favourite spot in Cornwall and my dream house....Cape House. Drive to St Just, turn right, follow the narrow lane down. National Trust car park £3 per day. Attendants wonderfully friendly, Apples Cafe serve fabulous snacks. Home made carrot cake is not to be missed. I never want to leave this spot. Enjoy the walk down or the walk up to the Cape Chimney.

Cape Cornwall is probably one of the most stunning sights in this part of Cornwall, especially if you go on a day when the two oceans that meet here are vying for supremacy. The sight is spectacular. Be warned for those who are poor walkers/unfit/unwell, it can be a very steep climb back up to the car park if you go down into the cove itself.

You must buy the home made cakes from the lovely lady who runs the Apple snack bar. They are utterly delicious as is the ice cream of course!

The landlord of the local pub recommended we went here and so glad we did! It was beautiful. The weather was kind to us and it was lovely and sunny (but breezy!). The views are amazing and there's even a little snack bar and toilets. Make sure you wear sensible shows for climbing over the rocks to get to the sea/sand or for climbing up to the top.
If you drive you have to pay for the car park (National Trust) but it's only a short walk from the village.
