A listing of St Ives Beaches
St Ives is justly proud of its beaches. Expanses of golden sand swept by the Atlantic Ocean. Choosing a favourite from any of the St Ives beaches will depend on your needs.
A family beach suitable for youngsters with facilities immediately on hand. Or a beach for extreme sports activities like surfing and kite surfing whether taking part or watching.
On arrival at St Ives, the Harbour beach is the first beach many visitors will see. It is very much a working harbour where fisherman will land their catch and where you may very likely see a seal pop up. If you arrive in St Ives by the train service from St Erith which runs along the Estuary the beach below the station is Porthminster beach with views across St Ives Bay to Godrevy.
The best-known beach in St Ives is Porthmeor Beach a lovely beach suitable for families. An excellent cafe and looked over by the Tate St Ives. Porthmeor Beach has RNLI Lifeguard patrols.[su_beach_surf_safety] [su_divider style=”dashed” divider_color=”#800000″ size=”2″]
