A Luxury St Ives Beach Break

Katy Peck

Sat poised between two of St Ives’ finest white sandy beaches, Sail Lofts St Ives luxury apartments are the perfect idyll for a solo or family beach break. Step out of your apartment turn left and in seconds your toes will be met with the warming sands of Porthmeor Beach, turn right Porthgwidden.

Porthmeor Beach St Ives

Famous for being one of the South West's best surfing spots, many visitors come year on year to try out the waves. Should you not be a budding surfer worry not, with plenty to do keep you out of the water surfing does not need to be your first go to during your luxury retreat.

To keep cool during the height of the summer sun mount the steps to Tate St Ives, which over looks over Porthmeor, a great way to immerse yourself in the local historic and recent art scene. With Sail Lofts guests being fortunate enough to enjoy free entry to both Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth museum and we highly recommend a return visit.

Heading over to the far side of Porthmeor Beach early morning on a Thursday and Sunday you will find chance to join Lucy Aldridge’s early morning Yoga sessions. Sparkling sea, sand and yoga helping aid you in finding your inner Zen before you start the day.

Porthgwidden Beach

Nostalgic beachside holidays don’t get quainter or more beautiful than a day at Porthgwidden. From its brightly coloured beach huts, to its perfectly proportioned nook carved from the slate face of the Island, and the views out across the St Ives Bay. All helped by its location next to the teams favourite breakfast spot of the Porthgwidden Beach Café.

We highly recommend heading out early, setting up in the prime location and then heading in for a light breakfast soaking in the sights of the bay before a day out on the sands.
