Porthmeor beach in St Ives has white sands and stunning turquoise waters, as do many of the beaches in this part of Cornwall. the beach has won numerous Blue Flag awards (rated for cleanliness)


Favoured by many, it's easy to see why the area is a magnet for artists (Tate Gallery St Ives also overlooks the beach).


There is also a good beach cafe serving great food & refreshments, and the town od St Ives is just waiting to be explored. Porthmeor has lifeguard cover during peak times. A good spot for families


There is some parking available on Porthmeor Hill, otherwise there are plenty of other carparks in St Ives.
