We have walked up to the chapel many ties, and the views are breathtaking, be it during the day or watching the sun set.

This is a must visit on any trip to St Ives. Although there is very little on the island, the views and tranquillity are magical. If you can time it when then chapel is open then it's worth stepping in for a couple of minutes too. The island dominates St Ives so an easy climb to the top is rewarded... More

A short walk over the grassy headland and the views from here are spectacular, making it a super vantage point for a photo opportunity.

One of my very favourite places in the world!, early morning, late evening or midday, just sit on the rocks and breath in the ocean!, a wonderful place to just sit and think!

Lovely little chapel on a hill with an interesting history. One of the reasons you visit the chapel is to sit quietly and take in the great views.
