It sometimes seems like at every turn of a corner there is a beach to be found in St Ives. Cornwall is renowned for its beautiful beaches and they don’t disappoint here.
One beach in particular (Porthmeor) is excellent for surfing and it always feels a little bit wild. Other beaches such as Porthminster, the Harbour beach and Porthgwidden are more sheltered.
Then there is Bamaluz beach which we can never remember the name of when we are there and usually just refer to it as ‘the dog beach’ because dogs are allowed on it all year round.
At low tide you can walk between many of the beaches, for example, Bamaluz, the harbour and Porthminster all become accessible usually with a bit of a paddle in the gently lapping waves. Here are a couple of photographs of each beach.
