Really, the cemetery is directly above a beautiful beach. Our B&B overlooked the cemetery and beach and it was very picturesque. If you're into that sort of thing, walking among the very old gravestones is sort of peaceful.

Great view on the atlantic! For a cemetery this is just spectacular. Layout is very nice - silent place to remain for a little while. Minus: next to a big parking space

Unspoilt and peaceful - search awhile and find the grave of Alfred Wallis. The Barnoon is a well kept secret - a magical, peaceful and completely unspoilt little place above the sea.

Visited Barnoon Cemetry as part of Shanty Baba's Ghost Walk, which I highly recommend. Great views from the top of the beaches.

Really interesting place to visit, came here on the Shanty Baba ghost walk which I highly recommend, lots of history to the graveyard so well worth a look, also fantastic views of Porthmeor Beach, peaceful and pleasant.

A good walk across St Ives is the Barnoon Cemetary. I happen to like cemeteries they are peaceful places and this one is no exception with grave stones looking out to sea from the hill side to the sound of the waves rushing to the shore on Porthmeor beach. Amongst the the graves stones dating back some 100 years plus... More

Lovely place if you like an amazing view with your grave trawling. Porthmeor beach provides the gorgeous backdrop to this last resting place. Ok I'm being silly but there actually is a special atmosphere here and it's worth a look. Alfred Wallis the painter has an especially interesting grave here if you can be bothered finding it.

Great place for deep contemplation. This is where I came to the realization that James Bond is a code name instead of an actual person, which explains why there are numerous Bonds throughout the last 20 years. Turns out this is already an existing theory and I was too late to the party. With that said, Barnoon Cemetery is a... More

This is a wonderful place. It's worth spending time reading the gravestones, the tributes to loved ones are fascinating. I'm not flagging any in particular as it is best to discover them for yourself and the place is packed with aspects of local lives, rewarding to discover.
