St Ives alone has five wonderful beaches, with both Porthminster and Porthmeor being awarded Blue Flags in 2022. Across the bay you will find three miles of golden sand stretching north from the Hayle Estuary. Then there's Porthtowan and Portreath just up the coast...
Sennen Cove right down near Land's End is another popular stretch both with surfers and families, whilst Mount's Bay provides endless walking and is often home to kite surfers.
There's also countless small secret coves, ideal for hiding away in, we would tell you where they are, but they wouldn't be secret then!
Though Sennen Cove is more popular as a surfing destination, there can be excellent swimming on days with gentler winds and a smaller swell. Ensure you always swim between the red and yellow flags.
There is a seasonal dog ban in place on the beach at Sennen Cove from the 15th of May to the 30th of September, between 10am and 6pm. Dogs are welcome at all other times.
