Nice short walk not far from a car park. Good views when you get to the top. Lots of colourful lichen on the stones and remnants of flowering thrift.

A trip to The Island is a must each time we visit St Ives & we are never disappointed by the views from this windswept outcrop

We always go up to this delightful little chapel whenever we are in St Ives. Beatutiful views. If it is open a prefect time just to sit and reflect

Staying in St. Ives without visiting The Island would be disasterous! The jutting headland, joining onto Porthmeor Beach provides the ultimate view of St.Ives bay in all it's splendour, particularly at sunset on a clear evening. Cornwall in all it's glory!

There is a wide tarmac path with regular benches leading up from the car park, it's not too steep that side either so it should be okay for trundler or wheelchair access.
