If you like surfing beaches then this is the place for you

The sea is so clean and a beautiful shade of torquise while the sand is a golden white

The beach is kept spotless and well deserves its blue flag status

There is nothing better than watching the sun set into the sea while drinking your favourite tipple

Rented an apartment on Porthmeor Beach for a week in November 2018. The balcony overlooked the centre of the beach and was an amazing vantage point to witness all the daily comings and goings. The crashing waves are mesmerising and we spent many hours watching them, and the surfers that braved being out amongst them.

The photos I have included speak louder than words....

I love Porthmeor Beach, we visit out of season so we can walk our dogs on all of the beaches in St Ives. Golden sands & blue sea. Not to be missed

It’s fair to say I was blown away with the Cornish beaches as they were so clean with crystal clear water, you could show someone a picture of this beach and it really could pass for any beach Holliday location in the world.

Nice cafe on top of the Tate over looking this beach and a good cafe on the road also over looking
