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.
