Autumn holiday in St Ives

Hélène Chaussavoine

If you are looking to enjoy St Ives and Cornwall when the streets a little quieter, this might be the perfect time for you to come here on holiday. Whilst the days are still sunny and with warm temperatures, Autumn makes a lovely time of the year to spend some relaxing time by the sea.

Quieter beach and beautiful sunsets

Start your day by a beach walk to make the most of the view and even if it is no longer the perfect weather to sunbathe, Autumn still offers the option to enjoy the beach with a few more layers on. Grab a book and a takeaway coffee from Porthmeor Cafe and enjoy a relaxing moment on the sand away from the crowd.

If you are feeling more active, plan a hike along the coastal path towards Zennor or Carbis Bay where you will be able to contemplate the most beautiful views over the sea. The start of either hikes is only a ten minutes walk from your self-catering apartment in St Ives.

Autumnal activities

There are plenty to do on rainy days or simply if you would like to keep busy whilst on holiday here. You can benefit from The Sail Lofts being a Tate member and book your tickets through the office to go and see their latest exhibition or their collection of work by St Ives artists.

The Leach Pottery is also offering some workshops throughout the months of September and October where you can improve your skills or experience something new. This renowned place also has a gallery of work presenting some pieces made by world-leading potters you can also visit at any time.

The sea may be colder and the temperatures lower but it is not too late to have fun in the water. St Ives Surf School remains open to give lessons and to teach you how to make the best out of the waves on Porthmeor Beach.
