The smallest beach in St Ives, near to the Island, is popular with families as it is very sheltered and a bit of a sun trap. East facing, with soft golden sand.
Surf rescue equipment located on the beach, no professional lifeguard cover.
- Seasonal dog ban, Easter to October
- Disabled access
- Shop/cafe nearby
Car parks are located in town – but the large car park at the top of the town is a hard climb back up. Why not park at Lelant Saltings and enjoy the scenic branch line right to the heart of the town.
