Best area in Cornwall for a family group with young children

We are hoping to visit Cornwall this August, we are a family group with three young children and can't decide on the best area to stay in. We are looking to be in walking distance of a safe beach for children and a town. There are so many lovely areas we have looked at but any suggestions on which areas are most family friendly would be a great help thank you

St Ives fits the bill. A choice of five, safe sandy beaches, all within easy walking distance of anywhere in the town. The town is compact, picturesque and has superb shopping, restaurants, cafes, take-aways, pubs and bars. it also boasts a multi screen cinema and a theatre, with excellent family shows performed to a professional standard by children aged 8-16.

Land's End, Minack Theatre, St Michaels Mount, Flambards, Paradise Park are all only a short drive away.

I'ld second St Ives - lots to see and do and a good choice of lovely beaches. But for August you would need to book SOON
