St Ives Bay

St Ives Cornwall

We say

Beyond the stunning beaches in St Ives itself you can see in the distance a three-mile stretch of pearly sands following the ocean from the foot of Godrevy Lighthouse to the shimmering tongue of Hayle estuary. Backed by miles of dunes and divided into the three main beaches of Hayle Towans, Gwithian and Godrevy, this is St Ives Bay. Attracting surfers, kitesurfers, walkers, swimmers and the bucket-and-spade brigade, here you can get active, get wet or just hang out in the surfside cafés.

You say Average Rating ★★☆☆☆

to be honest ...AWFUL ! ★★☆☆☆

Even though St Ives is beautiful it also so packed with people and i mean horribly packed, you can't take one step without bumping into someone, the is the second time I have been , the first time I thought I had just gone at a busy time, but no, this time was just as bad, so if you want shops,beach & pavements ram packed with people for a holiday then you will like st ives, otherwise I would avoid it. I will never go again.
