Lovely Views!
Jul 2021
A great place for sightseeing from the top and from the path that surrounds it. Lots of benches to sit and take in the lovely views from.

Easy walk
Jun 2021
It is not a difficult walk to the top of the hill although it is easy to feel lazy in St Ives. St Nicholas' Chapel and a coast lookout station provide some interest. However the views over St Ives and the southern coast are remarkable.

Amazing views of the surrounding area from Pendinas
Oct 2020
The Island – Pendinas is a headland to the north of the town centre which has incredible views of the surrounding area including Porthmeor Beach and St Ives Bay. The coastguard station of St Ives and St Nicholas Chapel are both situated on Pendinas. It is worth the walk up to the headland for the uninterrupted views of the surrounding coastline, it is quite a wild place even though it is so close to the centre of St Ives and well worth exploring.

Always a highlight
Oct 2020
The views from here are second to none and this time we also took the coastal path behind the chapel, blown along but the blustery winds.

Windswept glory
Oct 2020
Worth climbing up to the (very restored) chapel on the Island (which used to be but isn't any longer) to see the view up and down the coastline and across the beaches at St Ives. On a windswept day it was difficult to stand up but great fun!

Great views
Sep 2020
When you walk down the high street in St Ives, you come to what was an island. Lovely place for a walk with great views, a lookout station and an ancient chapel (which was unfortunately closed for renovations). There is a path, with some steep steps at the lookout station end, that goes right round the island and takes you back into town. There a plenty of benches so you can just enjoy the views and the sound of the sea.

Great views of St Ive’s
Jul 2020 • Family
Walked up from Porthgwidden beach. The chapel is closed at the moment. Worth visiting just for the views of St Ive’s. You can also see Porthmeor beach. Plenty of beaches along the route to the top.

Views galore
Jul 2019 • Family
A small hill with a chapel on the top, it provides a bit of greenery in a sea of cottages and sand. Wonderful views of the sea and of the town and a must-do when visiting for a week.

Spectacular views.
Aug 2019
Every year when I visit St. Ives I always go up to The Island, and admire the fantastic views.
I seem to discover something new every time I go, this year I found what appeared to be an old fire place.
The coastguard place allows the odd person, with children to go in and have a look at what they do.
There are some amazing views of the sea crashing against the rocks, round the other side.
There are handrails to help those less able to walk up and down the slopes.
well worth a visit even if you aren't a huge fan of walking.
