Holidays in St Just

Situated in a National Landscape (formerly Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), St Just sits just one mile from the Atlantic coastline and the stunning scenery of Cape Cornwall. For anyone looking to relax at a slower place, St Just is the ideal place to recharge your batteries. 


Experience village life in this traditional Cornish village, with a strong history of mining, farming and fishing. From its 15th Century Church, to the ‘Plen-An-Gwary’, one of Britain’s oldest working ampitheatres, and the evidence of mining throughout, the village has a clear sense of culture and identity, shaped by its past. You can’t get much more Cornish than St Just!

With so much to see and do in the area, you’ll easily fill your days, from walking the South West Coast Path, to visiting the iconic Land’s End, and exploring the many nearby coves and beaches.

St Michael's Mount

When visiting west Cornwall, a trip to the iconic St Michael’s Mount is a must. Steeped in history, and with nowhere else quite like it, this tidal island with its fairy-tale castle is truly the jewel in Cornwall's crown. Be sure to plan ahead and check the tide times, if the tide is in you’ll have to hop on one of the regular ferry boats, otherwise you’ll be wading back!

Walks in and around St Just

With such spectacular scenery on your doorstop, St Just is perfect for experiencing the great outdoors. Be sure to bring your walking boots so you can explore some of the many walks in the area…

The South West Coast Path

One of the best things about west Cornwall has to be its wild and rugged coastline, and walking the South West Coast Path is one of the best ways to explore it. Join the coast path at Cape Cornwall and you can walk to Sennen, Land’s End, Porthcurno or even onto Lamorna or Mousehole. Alternatively, head in the other direction towards Pendeen Lighthouse and towards Zennor. 

St Just to Cape Cornwall

This walk takes you across fields, past prehistoric sites and into the Cot Valley where you can extend the walk down to Port Navern, a keen spot for bird-watchers, before returning to the village of St Just.

Carn Galver to Men-An-Tol

If you’re interested in seeing some of Cornwall’s legendary prehistoric sites, then this walk begins in a location just a short drive from St Just. Beginning at Carn Galver, the route follows moorland paths leading to the Four Parish Stone, the Merry Maidens stone circle, Ding Dong, and onto Men-An-Tol. As well as the multiple stone sites, you’ll enjoy stunning panoramic views.

Beaches

If you walk along the coast path in west Cornwall, you’ll discover a plethora of hidden coves, however, there are a few bigger, more practical beaches to visit for a day on the sand.

Sennen Cove Beach

This large expanse of golden sand is the perfect place to visit for a day at the beach. Whether you plan to spend your time surfing, swimming, rock-pooling or simply relaxing on the sand, there’s plenty of space for everyone. 

Porthcurno Beach

This stunning beach boasts soft golden sand and turquoise waters, and with lifeguard cover from mid-May through to the end of September, it’s a popular choice for families. Sheltered by cliffs on either side, and with stunning views, it’s truly a little piece of paradise.  

Events

Visit St Just in July and you'll be able to take in the atmosphere at the popular Lafrowda festival; a fortnight of family friendly activities including dance workshops and colourful processions which make their way through the crowds.

For a more ancient celebration, Feast Day is a two-day event in November, which celebrates the dedication of the parish church.
