Beaches in and around St Ives
With seven beaches, and picturesque harbour, St Ives is the jewel of the westcountry.
Families love the safe beaches, the azure blue sea of the bay, the tiny cobbled streets and hidden corners waiting to be explored. Many of the beaches have small car parks near by, but St Ives is very popular, causing great demand on parking spaces. The best option being the main car park at the top of the town.
