St Ives is home to the landmark Tate St Ives Gallery (built in 1993) and the famous Barbara Hepworth Museum, St Ives is bordered by three beautiful sandy beaches which are repeatedly voted among the best in the British Isles, one particularly for surfing. Set against the colourful backdrop of the working fishing harbour, the turquoise waters of St. Ives have attracted artists since the 19th century due to its renowned clarity of light. The town, with winding cobbled streets, is an all-year tourist destination.

The apartment is adjacent to the stunning South West Coast Path and just to the East of Carbis Bay on this path is the magnificent unspoiled beach of Porth Kidney Sands.
At nearby Lelant, overlooking the Hayle Estuary there is a spectacular links golf course with views stretching up towards Godrevy Lighthouse. A scenic branch railway line links Carbis Bay and St. Ives with the main London-Penzance line at nearby St. Erth.
