Gwithian Beach

You can park here and either walk along the stunning cliff top towards the light house and then onto Hells Mouth or can wander down to the beach which has fantastic surf and some rock pools for exploring.
Stunning scenery, ideal for families, couples, activity lovers or just walkers enjoying the nature, breathing in the fresh sea air.

South West Coast Path - Godrevy Head
#3 of 12 Nature & Parks in St Ives
Godrevy is a wonderful place, fantastic scenery over st Ives bay, great for sunsets, picnics, seal whatching , one of my favourite places, national trust car park, toilet facilities and cafe nearby,
It is a great natural resource which seems to be appreciated by a wide range of people - surfers, pensioners, tourists, locals, nature lovers and photographers.
Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden
#4 of 12 Nature & Parks in St Ives
... many great works in a small space - able to see through some apertures to the sea, some to see plants in close up or huge leaves with reflected light - so different to Yorkshire Sculpture park but brilliant too.
I personally love her art and loved being able to see it in situ where you can understand how she was inspired by the sea, nature and the world around her.
Cornwall Coast Path
#5 of 12 Nature & Parks in St Ives
You can park at Lelant near the church and join the path there, or from Lelant Saltings , it is about an hour and half walk to St Ives.
Pathways that climb steeply and then plunge down again but it is the nature of the coastal path, and for some people its the challenge that counts.
Porthmeor Beach
#6 of 12 Nature & Parks in St Ives
Beautiful large golden sandy beach perfect for sunbathing, surfing & for the kiddies to play on, all the usual facilities close by along with a couple of car parks.
Loved this beach and we loved the beach called Porthwidden beach that had a little cafe, located back towards St Ives town across a car park and was smaller which made it easier to keep an eye on the children as t...

Porthkidney Sands Lelant
#1 of 1 Nature & Parks in Lelant
Access is by the coastal path, between Carbis Bay and the Park and Ride, but worth the walk.
Parking can be restricted as you park by the little church (free) and walk through the golf course, approximately 8 minutes with steep steps at the bottom.
The Island - Pendinas
#9 of 12 Nature & Parks in St Ives
There is a car park on the island which can get very busy or you can reach it by walking along the small coastal path near Smeatons Pier.
A short walk up the hill from the Island car park takes you to St Nicholas Chapel.
St Ives Harbour Beach
#10 of 12 Nature & Parks in St Ives
Top Tip: park at the top of the town in one of the main car parks as their is very little parking in the harbour area & it takes a long time to drive through the narrow streets flocking with visitors.
Lots of shops available and huge car park with bus into the town so easy to get too!

This beautifully laid out little park continues to fascinate with it's numerous sub-tropical plants, trees and fountains.
It was an interesting selection of plants and is very well maintained and although it was getting towards the end of the day a lot of people were enjoying a chat with friends in the park.
