Porthmeor Beach is a truly magical place if you can catch it empty, but equally thrilling when thronging with happy kids! St Ives is considered to be the 'jewel of the South West' and the sandy shoreline of Porthmeor is a haven for surfers, with safe but interesting waters making it a firm favourite with families looking for a fun day out by the sea.
A pleasingly expansive stretch of clean, crisp golden sand makes for a beautiful location and is perfect for hitting the surf, making a splash in the shallows or just getting on with some serious sandcastle building.
Porthmeor Beach is a Blue Flag Beach with fully trained lifeguards patrolling from Easter to the Autumn, with showers and public toilets available to all.
If you're feeling adventurous why not check out St Ives Surf School nearby which does both family discounts and a great deal more than surfing. See our listing for full information.
