This is an absolutely stunning beach with clear blue water and golden sand. Dogs are not allowed on this particular beach so it's very clean and safe for families

A large expanse of golden sands with views all round. A coastal walk above the beach along the cliff is breath taking. A cafe sits near the beach and a few other surf shops.

Everywhere in St Ives is super clean. The bracing wind from the Atlantic energizes and is a pleasure to look at..

This beach is a must for all the family where a walk along the beach or a dip in the sea can be rewarded with coffee or beer in the cafe that over looks the beach and surfers
