Moving around the point and the last of the St Ives town beaches:
Close to the harbour this is a lovely beach approximately half a mile long. It offers safe bathing as it is sheltered from most winds and is virtually always calm.
Parking is available at the Railway Station which is close by.
Services include:
Lifeguard service during the summer months
Restaurant/café/beach huts/toilets
Dogs banned from Easter to Oct 1st.

Summary

Highly recommended for families wishing to sunbath and swim. Not good for surfing owing to its sheltered location.
