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.

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.

A good place to get away from some of the crowds in St Ives, and only a short walk to get there. A pleasant walk round the Island, above the rocks, with good views of sea birds and also seals. Plenty of seats to sit on and watch the waves crashing on the rocks.

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!
