St Ives has so much to offer for for all the family, take to the water and learn to paddle board or surf, dip into the tempting collection of artisan shops and galleries, enjoy the local Cornish cuisine and sample some of Cornwall's local ales. There are a number of beaches within easy reach from the white sands of Porthminster to the wilder surf of Porthmeor. Bamaluz Beach is dog friendly year round so your dog can enjoy a salty swim too.
