Lovely on a windy day!

The Island is a feature for St Ives. It is only a short walk to reach the top and is particularly atmospheric on a blowy, winter's day.

You must visit before noon to avoid crowds. This gorgeous peak of St Ives gives wondrous views of the beaches. It is a pleasant stroll through the old town.

Always lovely to walk around and see the sights. Beautiful sunny day and can see for miles. Son also went to see the small lighthouse / lookout.

St. Ives is a busy place even off season. It was great to get away from the crowds and enjoy a great view on a blustery day. I wish that we had brought along a picnic lunch.

If you like walking for a view, then walk no further. This is a beautiful spot for a pleasant afternoon stroll. It has historical presences with the chapel on top and views anybody would enjoy. If it's a really nice day, this would be a lovely spot for a picnic or something of that sort.

For us, the Island is a wonderfull place to visit, almost magical when visited at sunrise when no-one else is about ! The Chapel on the headland is open at times, but these do vary widely, but the short walks around the perimeter do provide some lovely view across the bay, St Ives and towards Godrevy Lighthouse. Its a nice... More

One of my favourite walks. Views are great and always feel exhilerated . Was a bit worried my dodgy knee would not make it but no problems by keeping to the paths

Went for a walk on a sunny and blowy day with my one year old in a buggy and my 4 1/2 year old walking. Lovely stroll and view. We got to see the lighthouse and also the chapel on top as well as great views of Godrevy Lighthouse, Porthgwidden Beach, and Portmeor Beach. God fun - recommended.

A gem of a spot with crystal clear views on nice weather days. A wonderful little church that is well worth the brief climb up the hill. Anyone who visits St Ives must visit.
