The West Country region
The Cornish coastal path leads from the town in either direction. You can walk towards Land’s End via Zennor and enjoy rugged granite cliff scenery which has remained unchanged in centuries, or towards the often deserted sweep of golden sand at Lelant and on to Hayle Estuary which is popular with bird watchers.
A short drive away are St. Michael’s Mount and Penzance, where you can take a boat or helicopter ride to the beautiful Isles of Scilly. Further afield you can experience many other wonderful sights including the Minack Theatre and the Eden Project.
St. Ives has been famous as a beach resort for many years and has been loved by artists for its natural beauty and light. From the moment you arrive you will be stunned by the panoramic views. The town has a Mediterranean feel due to its sheltered and sunny harbour yet retains its character as a Cornish fishing village with a maze of narrow cobbled streets and quaint cottages.
In recent years, with the arrival of the Tate Gallery, St. Ives has become renowned as a place to enjoy a cultural break at any time of year. There is a large choice of excellent restaurants and bars offering some of the best cuisine in the country and providing a contemporary feel to the town.
