Harbour Beach

The Harbour beach of St Ives is also the town centre and hub of the community, The Wharf is the name of the area surrounding the harbour, this has a wealth of restaurants and bars, you can also find some of the best pasties in Cornwall although be careful not to lose them to the seagulls! The harbour is tidal and once the clear waters recede, the soft sandy beach is revealed. As the harbour is the centre of St Ives, a lot of festivals and events are focused in this part of town. At New Year, the residents and holiday visitors descend into the town and throng the streets in fancy dress, the crowd usually spills over onto the beach if the tide is out and at midnight, the fireworks start. This is one of the places to celebrate New Year, the atmosphere is electric. On quieter days, it is just pleasant to relax in the morning sun, perhaps with some local mussels at one of the harbour front cafes or hire a deckchair and enjoy a Cornish ice cream. For the adventuerous, there is boat hire, trips to see the local seals even yacht charter around St Ives Bay.
