Owner description: A favorite place for a family outing, this lovely stretch of beach overlooks Godrevy Lighthouse in the distance.
Reviewed 6 May 2012

This beach sweeps across a big bay with golden sand and pretty little beach huts framing it from behind. You can play tennis nearby and the Porthminster Cafe is a fab place to eat. Safe for children as it is not near a road. The sea is chrystal clear and azure blue. Enjoy!

A clean beach with plenty of cafes. A nice relaxing day out.

This is probably the best beach for the kids to paddle in the sea as the waves aren't as harsh here as some of the others.

Whilst St. Ives beach is lovely, it's worth walking over to this beach which is beautiful and less crowded

Clean and refreshing. The Cafe's were tastefully decorated and if the weather permits the tables outside on the beach was a nice touch. Would definitively go back there.Water clean and safe for children and elderly alike. Car parking was a bit pricey though (£6.40) for 24 hours (£1.90) for two hours.
