I spent 3 holidays a year for the first 16 years of my life on this beach and returned in April for the first time in 12 years. It really is one of the best beaches I have ever been on and like most people I have been on a few around the world. So clean and picturesque it really is a very special place. The dog loved it also and they are allowed on up until 1st May and then back on in September!

Says it all really. Fantastic, wonderful, spacious, clean, fab-u-lous. The beach has a lovely cafe for lunches. You can also see the train coming in and out of St Ives. At very low Spring tide you can even walk to St Ives Harbour.

We visited st ives in the Easter holiday and although it was cold the sun was shining and we enjoyed a lovely walk along this beach and found a lovely high viewing point above the beach where you could sit and admire it. There is a cafe on the beach which would be ideal when the weathers better.
