The Cornwall region

St Ives - The Town and Surroundings

We spent 5 years trying to decide where to buy our holiday home and finally decided on St Ives as our favourite English seaside town that we never seemed to get bored visiting.

If you don't know St Ives let me explain why we like it;

It is beautifully located - surrounded on 3 sides by aquamarine seas and white sandy beaches

The clarity of light has attracted artists for over 100 years and the town still has a large artist colony and many studios

The town is pretty with cobbled streets and many old granite buildings

It has a fantastic selection of pubs, restaurants, bistros, boutiques and shops

It has avoided the down market image of many coastal towns and does not suffer from endless tacky shops, takeaways, amusement arcades and loutish behaviour

It is an all year round destination and does not turn into a ghost town in the winter

the weather is often the best in the UK - attracting more than its fair share of sun and warmer temperatures

It is perfect for families - all the beaches are within walking distance and surround the town centre

It is also great for adult breaks with excellent restaurants, a selection of pubs, interesting shopping and a great base for walking or exploring the Far West of Cornwall

The Far West of Cornwall is fascinating - a landscape that has not changed in thousands of years with iron age settlements, sacred wells, rugged moorland, granite enclosed fields, miles of coast, coves and hidden beaches together with small granite villages and the ruins of tin mines, not forgetting a unique natural history supporting many rare species unique to this peninsular

More information can be found on the various St Ives websites - see links page

St Ives - The Beaches

There are 3 main beaches and 3 smaller ones

With so much beach they are never overcrowded even at the height of summer

All surround the town and Cape Cottage being central is about 250m from each

Porthminster is the most sheltered larger beach with an Edwardian feel to it being backed by the Porthminster hotel. It is perfect for smaller children wishing to avoid the surf

The Town beach surrounds the harbour and is our favourite for shorter visits and winter trips being most sheltered closest to the cafes, ice cream shops and pubs on the front

Porthmeor is the surfing beach - facing west it gets the bigger swells and you can hire boards and suits throughout the spring and summer. It also benefits from fantastic sunsets in the summer and many people stay on the beach late in the evening to barbecue and watch the sunset

Porthgwidden is a small cove on the 'island' it has a lovely cafe that doubles up as an evening bistro. The town is hidden by the cliffs and the beach looks out into the bay towards the distant lighthouse - it feels very Mediterranean on summer evenings

For dog walkers the beach behind the lifeboat house allows dogs all year (the others ban dogs between Easter and October)

Additionally there are many rock pools around the island, a waterfall on Porthmeor beach and crabbing potential next to the old pier at low tide.
