Winner of an International Travellers award for "Best Seaside Resort" in the UK and already named among the "30 most beautiful bays in the world", one of only two in Britain. St Ives, justifiable, claims to be the jewel in the crown of West Cornwall.
A picturesque fishing town, the heart of the resort is the harbour where working fishing boats still carry out the seagoing traditions, originating from the 19th century when pilchard and herring were in abundance.
The harbour is also one of the resorts four sandy beaches. Fascinatingly, at low tide the harbour empties of water, leaving boats totally stranded!
Porthmeor is the beach for surf lovers. Behind the beach in its prominent setting, is the new Tate Gallery. Opened by Prince Charles in 1993, it is one of Cornwalls major attractions.
Visit St Ives on a cold, wet weekend in March and still fall in love with its beauty, its history and its heritage. Visit once and return again and again and again ......
Beautiful and interesting ... popular with tourists ... an artists paradise.
Visitors can meander through cobbled streets, dine in one of the many and varied restaurants offering a wide choice of delicious food, visit the Helpworth Museum, the Tate or one of the smaller privately-run galleries or simply shop at the many designer shops that the town has to offer.
