Porthmeor Beach is a popular surfing spot in St Ives. A quiet suntrap nestled between the cliffs, it boasts the white sand that Cornish beaches are famous for. By day, its the perfect spot for sunbathing and surfing; at night it features spectacular sunsets. When youre there, you can go crabbing or watch the dramatic waves. If youre lucky, you might just see dolphins. Alternatively, you could hire a surfboard or try the surf school there.
The beach has won multiple awards and is staffed by lifeguards during the summer months. Its near the centre of St Ives and so is handy when you fancy a meal in a traditional pub. Or you could browse the art galleries and then relax at a trendy cafe.
For a change of scene, do try the nearby Tate Gallery St Ives, which features three seasonal exhibits each year. Why not get a double entrance ticket and see the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden too? This is a green oasis in the middle of town which boasts graceful sculptures by this internationally renowned artist.
