Love this beach, although it is very popular in the summer, being local I prefer it out of season to enjoy the fantastic scenery

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Pretty, calm (unless school holidays), clean and ideal family beach as its shallow and when the tide retreats there are lovely pools that are kept warm by the sun

“Best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is our second favourite beach in England.
The cafe does a really mean crayfish salad with a box of chips but watch out for the sea gulls.

Lovely beach! Great view and very clean! Always busy in St Ives and never heard anyone complain about the place! Would highly recommend a visit if in Cornwall!
