(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Porthminster Beach, crescent-shaped, sheltered, popular, and accessible by public transport, offers safe swimming, golden sand, and even palm trees. Look for the not-far-off Godrevy Lighthouse, grab a drink at the bar, and enjoy some quality people-watching. The calm blue-green water gives the beach a soothing, nearly tropical ambience. The Porthminster Beach cafe is widely renowned for high-quality seaside dining. A visit to Porthminster Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our St Ives vacation planner to plot your vacation.
