Huge great expanse. Beach comes in & goes out quite a way. Great for swimming. Safe for kids to swim & play on. Go up the hill or sit on the beach to watch a gorgeous sunset. You might even be lucky enough to see dolphins.

Busy in June, mobbed in July/August, parking a nightmare, none nearby so humping kids and kit traumatic and most unwelcoming, dogs 'BANNED'. Not discouraged, designated area or seasonal, just BANNED. We'll take our holiday pounds elsewhere St.Ives!

My favourite beach in West Cornwall in the winter. Unfortunately dogs banned in daylight during the summer

Beautiful sand, light and clear green/blue sea. Plenty of space and great location to bars, restaurants and shops. Great place to chill and watch the surfers do their stuff.

What can you say about a beach... it's sandy, you can hear the waves, you can go for a swim, get onto your bodyboard - if like me you're not the proper surfer! Quite busy at times, but generally a clean beach with the stunning backdrop of the Art Gallery. A place I didn't want to leave!
