The first beach in the journey along St Ives Bay is Porthmeor Beach. And it’s a good one. In fact, it’s a Blue Flag one. It’s a lovely long beach with the Island to the east, Tate St Ives behind, and a rocky headland to the west. It’s the most exposed beach in St Ives making it a popular choice for surfers of all abilities, swimmers, and families.
Dear dogs: Between 15th May to 30th September this is also a no-no between 10 am to 6 pm. The rest of the year it’s all yours though.
