St. Ives has a Mediterranean feel about it, with its maze of narrow streets and alleyways, crescent shaped beaches with their safe golden sands, accented by sunlight playing across the surface of an iridescent turquoise sea - all set, in the uniquely rugged granite landscape of West Penwith, with waved hewn cliff faces, prehistoric remains and the haunting ruins of the once great tin and copper mining industries, which flourished throughout the area.
The narrow, cobbled streets of St. Ives, festooned with a treasure trove of brightly coloured flower displays, beckon you to wander through them - to explore their steep slopes, and discover their hidden delights and hidden corners.
St. Ives offers the visitor everything that they could wish for in a seaside resort. From the moment that you arrive in the town you are stunned by the panoramic vistas that seem to greet you on every turn.
This is a place that truly has something for everyone. Families can spend countless hours playing.
