Mutton Cove is renowned for its seal population. From the Godrevy Head Car Park There is an “Easy” circular walk that encompasses stunning views past the lighthouse across St Ives Bay to the town of St Ives and the Lands End Peninsula. From the car park, simply follow the Coastal path towards the headland – keeping the sea to your left.
Follow the footpath around to the north side of the headland, where the coastal path begins descend gradually. You follow the path until you reach Mutton Cove (there is no access down the cliff to the cove), Parking in the National Trust car park at Godrevy Point,follow the footpath that heads north, (seemingly away from the coast), and after 200 metres of easy walking up a slight incline you will arrive at the wooden barrier at the top of the cliff overlooking Mutton Cove. On a good day there may be 30 or more Grey Seals ashore.
However please be aware that even though you are at the top of the cliff when viewing the seals on the shingle beach below it is very important that you keep noise to a minimum, including voices, and barking dogs.
