A lovely beach, but sadly some dog owners don't clean up after their dogs.

It's similar story for all the beaches in St Ives, even those where dogs are supposedly banned. We saw number of owners misusing the beaches which was a real shame as they'd be wonderful if it wasn't for the irresponsible dog owners.

Otherwise the beach is lovely wih great views and worth a visit if you don't mind wayching where you step.

Surfing beach. Sun sets over this horizon. All beaches in St Ives are good but all a bit different. Tapas beach restaurant here. Surfing lessons available.

We visited this beach in September 2013. There are lots of rocks to clamour over with rock pools to explore. The beach itself is and beautiful. The sea is clear and clean, no problems with paddling here. There are many good cafes and restaurants within three minutes walk of the beach as the town starts on the edge of it. No long walk to the car park here. Great for all the family and big enough to cater for everyone without it ever being crowded. Will definitely visit again.

This cafe is in a lovely spot with beautiful sea views. Some of the tables are in lovely alcoves. The staff were helpful but the food was a bit hit and miss. The fish was cooked ok but the meat was dried out and the chips were indifferent. Perhaps it was just a bad day when we visited.
