September in St Ives

Rachel Adams

September is one of our favourite months here in St Ives. It is a little bit quieter than in the summer however this does not mean it's less enjoyable. September has been known to be one of the best months to visit Cornwall to soak up the last bit of the sun, on the other hand, if the weather takes more of a chill it is the first opportunity to enhance the autumnal beauty.

Sea Temperatures in September

The sea is actually at its warmest in September and on a beautiful day full of sun the beach can be the perfect way to enjoy your relaxing break in St Ives. Enjoying the last opportunities for a dip in the sea. September is also one of the best months for surfing in Cornwall. So, if you wanted to bring your surfboards to enjoy the last of the summer sunshine. Here at the Sail Lofts, we have a safe and secure wet room where you can store your surfboards.

Quieter Beaches

Along with warmer sea temperatures the beaches are much quieter than they are in the peak of the summer. Enjoy a spacious and peaceful day at the beach where you can sit and relax. September has blessed us before with some beautiful summer-like days so why not make the most of the summer rays before the chillier days commence. If, however, the temperatures are not as warm, the beach is also a lovely place to have a stroll and get some needed fresh air. Why not wrap up warm and take a hot drink and sit or walk along the beach?

Exploring the Coast

In Cornwall we are lucky enough to have access to some amazing coastal walks. St Ives is lucky to have the South West Coastal path running throughout this beautiful coastal town. Why not take advantage of this and take a stroll in any direction and enhance the natural Cornish beauty? If you don’t fancy walking you can always hire a bike to cycle the coast and explore, Zennor is a very popular place to cycle and enjoy the stunning views. At the Sail Lofts we have a collaboration with St Ives eBikes, where our guests receive a 10% discount on bike hire so don’t forget to mention this if you decide to book.

The Town

If the weather is not beach weather there is always the option to have a wander around the town and take a look in some of the variety of shops we are lucky to have in St Ives. There are many types of shops to enjoy, from independent clothes and jewelry shops to art galleries and surf shops St Ives has plenty to offer to all interests. Take a wander through the cobbled streets of St Ives and enjoy exploring what else St Ives has to offer.
