With its incredible mix of stunning cliff architecture, jaw-dropping sea caves and arches, as well as indescribable features and plenty of tasty jumps, this is the next-level of coasteering challenge you’ve been waiting for. And there is, of course, the infamous 'Ghost Train'...
"Had a fantastic time coasteering at Land's End. Would definitely do it again."
So what is it about coasteering at Land’s End that makes this the ultimate coasteering in Cornwall? As soon as you start descending the towering cliffs you’ll realise that, first, it’s the scenery. The golden granite cliffs have been chiselled and sculpted over the ages to form a breath-taking landscape of vertical cliffs, rocky promontories, arches and caves.
Land’s End draws visitors from far and wide, but none of them will be seeing it from our perspective, down at sea level, exploring every nook and cranny of these cliffs in fascinating detail. Having explored the coasteering all around Cornwall, we can safely say simply being in this place is an unforgettable experience.
Each zawn, gully and cove presents its own challenge which we need to work as a team to cross. Explore all of the coasteering features: wave-washed slabs, pour-overs, islets, sea stacks and caves. The caves at Land’s End need special mention. Huge, cathedral caverns; luminous seaweed-stained grottos; incredible arches to swim through and the Ghost Train, the indescribable highlight of the route that has to be seen to be believed.
As we round the UK mainland’s most westerly point and finally scramble up the buttress over the final archway of Gamper Hole, you’ll feel a great sense of achievement, exhausted, but delighted to have ticked Cornwall’s ultimate coasteering challenge.

How Does Land’s End Coasteering Work?
Land’s End is very exposed to swell coming in from the Atlantic Ocean, so it is not possible to do coasteering here every day. Therefore if you would like to do this coasteer, contact us to register your interest, and let us know the time period in which you can do the activity. We will then pick the best day during that period to do the coasteer.
Your flexibility is greatly appreciated, as the weather forecast changes constantly. If during your time in the area suitable conditions for Land’s End coasteering don’t occur, we will take you on one of our other fantastic coasteering routes instead.
