The smallest beach in St Ives! Located nearest to the cottage, just down the steps from the walkway to the parking space. This is the only beach in St Ives without dog restrictions, dogs are allowed all year round.


Porth Kidney

A most spectacular large beach favoured by parasurfers and paragliders! With a fantastic walk from St Uny church, along the beach and back along the coastal path to Carbis Bay and St Ives. Not suitable for families as there are no facilities and swimming is not recommended due to dangerous currents.


Carbis Bay

A good safe family holiday beach with excellent sands. North facing and surrounded by hills for good protection. Facilities include parking (although busy and expensive in season!), toilets, take away café and The Carbis Bay Hotel which has a restaurant and bar open to non-residents.



At low tide there is a vast amount of sand and plenty of room with large areas of rock pools. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach from the car park. There is a lovely café in the car park.
