“Safe golden sands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

A superb beach giving 365 days enjoyment to all ages. When the bathing tents go up, the putting green opens and the ice cream and tea shop springs into life surely a demi-paradise for holidaymakers and locals alike

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

Another wonderful little Beach which you will love, this is quite a small beach very quaint again gold sands blue water clean and a little easier to keep the eyes on the family it's so easy to loose sight of them on large beaches not on this one fantastic

“Very nice seaside restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

Some dishes are a little rich so be careful what you order. Soup was hot and tasty, vegetable curry nice, fish and chips excellent.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

Biiiiiig beach, very clean and plenty of places to eat nearby and rent beach accessories should you need it. Just be aware of dogs owners violating the seasonal no dog rule and allowing them to make poop castles....

“Superb Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

A wonderful beach, beautifully clean and well kept. Nicely located between the town of St Ives and the cliffs either end, with easy access to the railway station. Two excellent cafés serving good breakfasts and a wide variety of beach food etc. well worth a visit.
