St Ives is a small fishing town on the dramatic North Cornwall coast, a beautiful place in itself as well as a perfect base from which to explore the rest of Cornwall. The town retains much of its original character and charm with its cobbled streets, winding alleys and whitewashed granite fisherman's cottages. St Ives is famous for its stunning yellow sand beaches and numerous little hidden coves. Porthmeor beach with its rolling breakers, is a favourite with surfers whilst Porthgwidden and Porthminster are favoured by families for their calm, translucent bathing waters, whilst the St Ives September Festival plays host to some of the countrys best alternative art and music.
Art has played an important role in shaping St Ives, famed for its special light and inspiring sea and landscapes, and remains a major draw for many visitors. The Tate St Ives is situated dramatically above Porthmeor beach and exhibits artwork by many local and international artists on a regular basis. St Ives has been a home for such artistic luminaries as Barbara Hepworth, Bernard Leach, Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron, and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, many of whose work is featured in galleries and museums in the town. There are also numerous small galleries and studios dotted around the town which offer a wide range of differing art forms.
St Ives is extremely well served with entertainment and amenities to suit most tastes. Award winning restaurants and cafes, open year round, range from local seafood and produce to Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.
