Lovely well kept beach which was clean and tidy. Be aware taht there are numerous steep steps but if you walk further towards the town, it gets a bit more accessible.

Beautiful sandy beach nestled amidst the steep slopes of the buildings of St Ives. Amazing views from the higher roads. Lots of field parking at reasonable price, a few minutes walk to the beach though. Boats, shops and many, many wonderful places to eat.
