“So beautiful and peaceful”
Review of Gwithian Beach

Gwithian Beach
Ranked #3 of 63 things to do in St Ives
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 September 2017

This is such a beautiful place, very scenic with St Ives across the bay and Godrevy lighthouse close by.
Clean, soft sand, rock pools to explore, cliffs and little coves to sit and enjoy the goings on or join in if that's your thing.

This is a great beach for walking enjoying the views over to St Ives the sound and smells of the sea. The Rock formation lots to explore little caves , rocks . Doggie heaven. Access onto beach is challenging for the less able

There are some places you visit and just think "yup this is it", "this is all you really need". And this is one of them, miles of outstanding beach and sand dunes, you can spend all day just living, enjoying and not a care in the world. It is made even better if you have a dog/s as this is a dog friendly area,(if you are not a dog person, then you should borrow one, just for the fun they have). Never busy and always beautiful no matter what the season or weather. Plenty of places to stay, camp and visit in this part of England, don't visit, your loss!!
