Porthminster Beach

Porthminster beach is a short level walk from the harbour and town centre of St Ives, it is ideal for families and provides safe bathing and of course good sand castling. At extreme low tides, you can walk from the harbour beach around the headland. Historically, this was the beach mainly used by the Victorians who came by train from Penzance and further afield. The single track railway still passes along the scenic coastline to Carbis Bay and St Erth. There is also a large station car park but for those traveling from out of town, the rail link is recommended.

The Porthminster Beach Cafe and Restaurant is highly regarded and with many awards and has featured on the discovery Channel series, it is important to book particularly for dinner but this is special. Right on the beachside, the open terrace is the place to be, listen to the surf, watch the sunset, even fireworks on New years Eve, the quality of local produce and the inventiveness of the chef ensures an excellent dining experience.
