“Best beach in St Ives”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Smallest of the three main beaches it is sheltered and has a great little café. Perfect for families although a little walk from the main car parks

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Picture perfect. Try Portminster Beach Cafe for a fabulous lunch or dinner right on the beach.
The sea is pretty cold so you may want to dip you toes in and test before a swim.

“Wonderful atmosphere, service and food and a beautiful location”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Brilliant! Lovely restaurant, great location, fantastic food and very good service. There is a wonderful relaxed atmosphere in this restaurant. We liked it so much we went back again on the last night of the holiday and all agreed it was the most enyoyable meal of the week. The chocolate creme brulee is delicious!!
