Up and Down the Coast

Whether you arrive in St Ives by car, train, plane or bike you can easily get outside and explore the county. Being centrally located in the heart of Cornwall you can journey in almost every direction (even into the Atlantic you can enjoy a boat tour!) allowing you to experience the wonders that the county can offer you. From stunning vistas from the coastline to enjoying some of Cornwall's historic sites you can enjoy just what makes this part of the world so unique. Visit the nearby town at Zennor, maybe even brave the storied walk if you're feeling up for it, the headland in this area offers some of the best visuals of Cornwall's dramatic coast seen on the screen in BBC's Poldark.

Of course you may fancy venturing out of St Ives to take in the beaches, fortunately you're in luck. A few miles up the coast are the sands of Hayle Towans with their vast and open dunes across an expansive stretch of beach.

Summer in St Ives

In St Ives you have so much to enjoy throughout the summer, the town has some of the best places to dine on the coast. Sit on the edge of the harbour front on Porthminster Kitchen's balcony and soak up the sun with a spot to eat, with a blend of seafood and Asian cuisine or simply a refreshing drink you can enjoy the best of the sun in relaxation.

Evening dining in St Ives once again has everything you will ever need, either make the most of your self catering holiday cottage and enjoy something special by taking advantage of our concierge services or eat out. Just a short walk from the Sail Lofts luxury holiday cottages is the Porthmeor Beach Cafe, nestled on the edges of the sand near the surf school the restaurant boasts some of the most tranquil evenings you can enjoy in the town, nestle yourself in one of their self contained pods and watch the evening drift by.
