“Such a Lovely Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were lucky enough to be staying nearby on a recent holiday to the area. It's a short treck through the golf course to get there but well worth it. It was such a good find.

I loved the early morking walks with my dog. Such great memories.

There are no facilities there so take everything you need for your visit.

“Long beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Lovely long beach, clear blue sea and white sand. Would be great to walk along if you had a dog. One thing to remember is even though it looks a long beach, once you get to the river bit on the beach you cannot reach the otherwise without travelling a long way round. If however you go by car, would be a great beach to visit.

“Beautiful deserted beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Lovely sand with very few people on the beach and unusually for this area it is dog friendly!
There will be a short walk to get here but it is worth the effort.

“The Best St Ives Bay Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Although more of a walk involved to get there you could be the only people on the beach and when the tide is out you can walk for miles and miles. Stunning.
