I loved the Island. St. Ives can become exceptionally busy because it's so popular. If you want a complete break from the hustle and bustle in the town this is where to come. As soon as you step out of the carpark and on to the path leading up to the St. Nicholas Chapel a sense of complete peace descends.... More

A visit to The Island is a must! Paths around The Island have plenty of seats to rest part way. You can overlook Porthgwidden, The harbour and Porthminster beaches and can see accross to Carbis Bay and Hayle sands! To see the waves crash in upon the rocks is fantastic. A very beautiful spot.

If you are interested in bird watching, seal watching and taking photos of beautiful views, it is worth walking round the headland and up the hill.

Well worth the walk to the top for the magnificent views either side of St Ives and for the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle in the town below. There are several benches to sit and have a moment or ten. A lovely spot if you are visiting the town.

The paths around the Island make it way to get around with plenty of seating to allow you to watch for the dolphin pods and Seals that frequent the area. A pleasant place to relax at the end of a long day watching the crashing sea on the rocks around the Island.

Definitely worth the time to walk the trail up the hill where the views are stunning of St. Ives town and beaches. The path is safe and relatively easy. Can be done in an hour or less round trip.

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.
