St ives In recent years St Ives has become one of Europe's premier holiday destinations, famed not only for its beautiful beaches and coastal paths but also for the maze of narrow, cobbled streets packed with restaurants, galleries, cafés and local bars and all lead down onto the picturesque harbourside. There are five sandy beaches, including neighbouring Carbis Bay, three of which are award-winning, blue flag beaches; the coastal paths provide a treat for walkers and bird-watchers alike.
The town is also renowned for its artist community; many artists live in and visit St Ives because the light is said to be special and, let's face it, it's a very beautiful place. There are galleries, art shops and artistic inspiration all over the town including the Tate, and the Barbara Hepworth museum and sculpture garden.
The town has a lovely mix of smaller, independent shops and high street stores. There are plenty of gift, ice cream and surf shops but also a great butcher, clothes shops and newsagents. There is a Co-op for groceries or an out-of-town Tesco some 2 miles away.
