St Ives is a busy, bustling place. but just 5 mins walk, you can leave that all behind. As you walk round the Island ( perhaps i should clarify, its not actually an island but a peninsular ) with the town behind you, you are transported to the most beautiful views of the coast and the ocean. If you are... More

A lovely walk through the streets of St Ives with quaint shops then along the harbour and up to the Island. The view from the top of the hill is stunning with panoramic views of St Ives and out to sea. If you're really lucky, you'll see the sea lion who comes in quite close to the shore. On a... More

What an amazing place, you get lovely views of St Ives and out to sea, it is so relaxing listening to the sea crashing against the rocks. The chapel on the top is cute and there's plenty of room for picnics. There is a coastal path to walk around but this would prove difficult for pushchairs & wheelchairs.

Breathtaking panoramic view of the town and surroundings, when you are at the top of this tiny island. The wide Porthmeor Beach in the foreground is lovely, specially at low tide. Smaller Harbour Beach can also be seen a bit further on the left. Between the two are rows of houses and buildings neatly aligned, mainly white and pastel shades,... More

Lovely spot with 360 views. If a clear day, the sun sets behind the chapel which is pretty. There are benches everywhere so easy to have a rest after the hill. It can also be a good stargazing / meteor shower lookout spot at nighttime as v low light pollution. We saw the blood moon lunar eclipse from there last... More

We sat overlooking the Atlantic on a beautifully hot day and were entertained by a pod of dolphins out at sea.
