I go to St Ives quite often & I never come away without visiting St Nicholas Chapel on 'The Island'. I feel a sense of peace & reverence here, even on a day when the wind is blowing a gale & you can hardly stand upright. The chapel is usually locked but I think it does open sometimes, as I... More

The views are stunning from here we usually take a brunch up with a big group of us and get the kids flying kites and the usual ball games, my claim to fame is being on the front cover of the local cottage rental broacher with my eldest daughter flying a kite on a stunning morning in 2014, one often...

This little place has the most beautiful views in St Ives on top of a hill overlooking several beaches. It's worth the walk up and you will be very tempted to take lots of selfies!

A really nice day in October and an amble around the island was a really pleasant way to pass the time. Just sitting on the benches watching the activities of others on Porthmeor Beach or watching the different birds as we walked around made me wonder why we hadn't done this previously on our many previous visits to St Ives....

We have visited St Ives many times and in the summer this chapel is open to the public. Fanatic view from the top of the Island.

The path up to the crest of the Island is not as steep as it appears; if you feel at all able, by all means walk up and don't forget your camera.

I took a guided tour from the guilds hall with Tony Farrell, who led us for 2 hours across St'Ives and up to the Island (not to be missed) - you have to go up there and see the views.

Our holiday apartment overlooked the Island and we made a point of visiting it regularly to walk, take in the air, and admire the stunning scenery. The island attracts lots of people doing much the same; many with dogs, some without. You can strike up a conversation with people who are enjoying a relaxing break, or are lucky enough to... More

Those who walk up the hill to the chapel will be rewarded with marvelous views up the coast toward Trevose Head and down the coast toward Zennor as well. It is a great spot to spend time on a lovely day.

I walked up to the chapel with my 2 children who were 8 and 11 at the time. We all enjoyed the walk up especially as it was a gorgeous day. The chapel itself is fascinating and very interesting reading all the history of it. The view up there is amazing, definitely worth a walk up to pass an hour... More
