Beaches magnetically attract surfers
When you search for privately owned caravans for hire in St Ives, you are quite frankly spoiled for choice if beaches are your ‘thing’. There are at least four distinctly different beaches, just circling the main town centre. They aren’t pebbly or difficult to get to, but wide expanses of golden sandy beaches. Facing the mighty Atlantic Ocean, the area tends to be a magnet for surfers of all abilities, as there’s a constant stream of ‘rollers’ washing the shore with exhilarating regularity. To the other side of the town, which is protected from the Atlantic, there’s the harbour and quiet sandy beaches, where the kids can play safely, while you relax on the sandy shore and watch the world go by.
Fresh fish and seafood is always available at the Fishing Harbour
The harbour front is littered with charming fisherman’s cottages, with olde world pubs and restaurants, that will serve you fresh seafood directly from the day’s catch at the harbour; it’s a joy to just stroll along there and watch the world go by. Directly to the back of the seafront is the main street which is packed full of shops selling everything from buckets and spades to fine art, created locally by eminent artists. There is a plethora of art and crafts galleries and shops selling those types of goods.
