Early Morning Swim …

Hélène Chaussavoine

The main advantage of being so close to the sea here at Sail Lofts is that you're able to dip your toes in the water whenever you feel like it. Few of our guests have incorporated a morning swim straight out of the bed in their routine whilst staying with us and there is nothing better to start the day. Wake up in the morning, enjoy a warm cup of coffee with our Nespresso machines and make your way down to the beach when Porthmeor is still empty.

If you happen to be staying in our flagship luxury holiday cottage in St Ives, your front door is about 10 steps away from the beach where you will be able to enjoy the fresh air of the early mornings. As the beach remains empty and quiet, enjoy an early swim amongst surfers who start their day before the crowd comes in. Not only this, an early swim is good for your body and soul but not only that - it's the best way to get yourself ready for the day ahead.
