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 that lead down into 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.
St Ives is great for eating out; there are lots of fish and chips shops, seafood restaurants including the award-winning Porthminster Café, The Loft, and the Seafood Café.
St Ives is just 10 minutes from the A30 that connects it to other Cornish towns and the Cathedral City of Truro. The St Ives Bay Railway Line runs around the coast and is a beautiful route. Trains to St Erth meet the main line and connect to other Cornish towns and to Plymouth, Reading and London Paddington and to cross-country services to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. Newquay Airport is less than an hour away with routes to UK and Irish airports as well as European destinations.
