St Ives can be very busy, especially in summer. The island is only a couple of minutes away from the crowds but is a haven with fantastic views of the beaches and Godrevy lighthouse. Plenty of benches to take a few moments to enjoy this free experience.

Only staying 100 yards away but such a relaxing hidden gem from crowds in st Ives. Lots of seating out of the wind and just a great place to chill. All types catered for from babies to oldies, dogs and kite flyers(particularly good even with 7.99 cheap thing) . never flown a kite so 50 a good age to begin!

A lovely spot where you have the sea infront of you and behind you. Climb the hill and see this old chapel where services are still held. walk around the island and take in the breathtaking views, see the waves crashing on the rocks. a great spot.

What a lovely place to go to relax and view the sites around St. Ives. I have been to St. Ives many times but never really ventured away from the harbour front. This year we decided to go for a walk through the backstreets taking in the less commercialised areas of St. Ives we ended up on top of the... More

The island has been keeping me amused for 40 years and now my children love its romance. Rolling down the hill and flying kites - this little island will forever stay with me

A really tranquil little hill with a delightful little chapel on top. The views from here are just brilliant in all directions. Nice to get away from the sometimes overwhelming crowds in the narrow streets below. It's a short easy walk up and there are plenty of benches and loads of space to sit and enjoy the views. Loved it.

The Island has a very Special Place in our Hearts as Mums ashes are scattered on the far Western side, so our regular visits to leave Roses mean a grat deal to us both. The grass and seating is beautifully maintained.

We always make our way to the 'island' when in St Ives (taking a pasty bought at Ferrells to eat sitting on a bench watching the sea on the rocks if the weather is nice enough). Even when the weather is not so kind, this is a good place for enjoying the views and watching the sea - or the... More

When you eventually find the car park through all the narrow streets and people, it is well worth it as on a clear day the views are amazing.
