Located between Porthgwidden and Porthmeor Beach, on the walk around the north side peninsula. Great views from the top. The Pendinas and the light house are located close together. Several benches on both sides, many in remembrance of loved ones. Good views of the harbours.

A fantastic area to look out to sea from. A must area for bird watchers and those looking to go somewhere a little quieter than the town centre!

It is a bit of a climb to the top but well worth it for the views when you get there. There are plenty of seats.

My partner and I walked up to the small chapel on a late evening in August. We weren't disappointed with the view and the chapel. The hill is a small incline and with many benches up there it is lovely to sit and watch the sea.

Beautiful scenery. We saw dolphins so close to the headland. The spray hitting the rocks was spectacular. Parking nearby.

We had our Wedding Blessing here, the inside of the Chapel is quaint and very interesting, after the blessing we had cream teas outside, the weather was sunny with a slight breeze, just perfect. The panoramic views are stunning and it is well worth a visit.

Not really an island at all, but don't let that stop you. This island come peninsula is pretty enough, great height to see around St Ives toped by a tiny church and waves crashing against the cliffs. Very good to wonder up.

St Ives is busy in August - REALLY busy! However, it is possible to escape the hustle and bustle of the masses in just a couple of minutes by visiting the Island. It is not a difficult walk for anyone fairly active and offers a wonderful panoramic view of St Ives and the surrounding area. It was very windy despite... More

Quite a gentle incline to the lookout. Great views into St Ives and the soft sand beaches on one side: on the other side there is a great view of the expanse of the sea.

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
