Gwithian (Cornish: Godhyan) is a coastal village in west Cornwall, England. It is three miles (5 km) northeast of Hayle and four miles (6.5 km) east of St. Ives, Cornwall across St Ives Bay.

Until 1934 Gwithian was a separate civil parish within Redruth Rural District. In 1934 Gwithian and its neighbouring civil parish of Gwinear were transferred to West Penwith Rural District where they were merged into the single civil parish of Gwinear-Gwithian.
