Every time I step onto Porthminster beach in St Ives, Cornwall I am whisked back in time to our many happy childhood holidays spent in what seemed to be endless sunshine filled days on this beach. It still retains the same charm with the clean sands and safe gentle sea. Great for everyone and close to all of the amenities of beautiful St Ives. I love it!

Cafe is a must to visit. Excellent view, food and service. Families are welcome. Book in advance may get you a window seat.

We sat on the benches and purchased drinks whilst we waited for our holiday lettings company to give us our cottage key but quite nicely located right on beach with view of the sea. Drinks were a bit pricey but that seems the same for everywhere in St Ives.

We had a very delicious lunch. Creative and well prepared dishes.

The waitresses were very helpful with finding us a new table when the one we had on the terrace was too cold due to the winds.

Of course the lovely view of the beach.
