Porthmeor Beach

St Ives is blessed with a number of beach on three sides. Porthmeor beach is renowned for two things Surfing and the Tate Gallery. a short walk through the centre of St Ives town, just follow the people with surf boards because this is the beach to enjoy some serious surfing. Whether you favour boogie or malibu, the Atlantic swells roll onto the beach to provide some ideal sets. There is a small car park but you will need to be early and don’t be tempted to park on the road, you will be fined. During the summer season, lifeguard support is provided and the Surf School is open to hire wetsuits and boards or even lessons for beginners.

Just off Porthmeor beach is an excellent cafe and terrace open year round. Porthmeor beach also earns a reputation from the Tate Gallery which perhaps landmarked St Ives certainly amongst artists. Even if you are not interested in the constantly changing exhibitions, it is worthwhile just sitting in the auditorium, this has been designed accoustically to maximise the sound of the surf – even at low tide. In the evenings of course the sun sets directly over the beach, you can enjoy some of the most spetacular colours, don’t forget the camera.
