Porthmeor Beach

St Ives

We say

St Ives’ Porthmeor Beach has – like its neighbour Porthminster Beach – been awarded blue flag status (although you only need to peer into the crystal clear waters to see just how clean they are) and is a popular surfing beach. Seasonal lifeguards. Seasonal dogs ban May–Sept, 8am–7pm.

Stunning but Busy ★★★★★

Get there and experience this beach out of season as you wont regret it....not so great during the summer months when x marks the spot but don't count it out as get there early enough and everything is at your fingertips for a great family day out...
