  • What a fantastic beach for everyone including the dog. One of the best dog friendly beaches in the country. Only trouble is there are no ammenities probably why most of the sunbathers were on the sand...  more »

Where to stay in St Ives

A guest room along one of the cobbled Victorian streets, such as Fore Street, provides access to pubs, restaurants and the harbor. For spectacular views over the sea, consider a hotel near the water. Book harborside lodging early because seaside rooms fill up fast, especially during the holiday season. Inland from the southern coastline, renovated shepherd's huts and cottages provide shelter among the hills.
