Cornwall Coastal Landscape Photography Locations Map

20th November 2014
If you are a landscape photographer looking for the most dramatic coastal scenery in the UK there is a good chance that Cornwall will be high up on the list of places to visit. The coastal landscape around the southern tip of England offer so much interest you could literally spend weeks exploring the beaches, bays and cliffs along the South West Coastal Path. Access to the coast around this part of Cornwall is relatively easy with plenty of car parks near to some of the most popular spots. Seascapes are a popular theme for photographers visiting Cornwall on holidays and photography trips, the sea can often be very rough with the waves coming across the Atlantic and breaking on the rocky cliffs and coves.

I've created a map with some of the best spots for photography around the Cornwall coastline built up from knowledge from my trips including car parks and access points to the Cornwall coastal path and beaches. I'm sure there will be hundreds of other great spots for photography all around the South West Coastal Path but these are the locations I have visited and have location information for. I'm hoping to create a definitive guide to photography locations in Cornwall on this page, if there are any locations that you think should be added to this map which I have missed please get in touch with details & co-ordinates! I visit Cornwall at least twice a year and so this information will also be useful for my future photography trips.

The area around Lands End in Cornwall is a haven for photographers, the amazing coastline and dramatic seascapes make photography relatively easy with access to the coastline facing the correct direction for sunrise and sunset shoots mixed with dramatic sea cliffs and pristine white sandy beaches. The crystal clear waters Atlantic waters are a real attraction for photographers as they can be beautifully rendered with the camera giving a depth of colour not normally possible at other areas of the coast. There are many locations in Cornwall that I am yet to visit, below is a group of shots from my trips over the past 5 years.
