St.Ives in Cornwall has turquoise blue sea and beautiful beaches.
St Ives has been voted as having some of the best beaches in the world and some great restaurants which sit right on the beach with fabulous views over soft yellow sands towards an ocean so blue.
St.Ives is an ideal holiday destination
There are not many places around the UK where you can have an evening barbecue after a beautiful day and see one of the best sunsets, and if lucky a display from a school of dolphins, pure magic.
Renowned for some great waves, suitable for experienced surfers or just raw beginners. You have a great place to holiday with other like-minded souls who enjoy beach life.
Festivals & art
St Ives is fortunate to still have some original pubs which offer great entertainment at various times of the year, not forgetting the St Ives Music Festival in September which offers numerous famous visiting artists, to some great street busking, all lending to the wonderful appeal of St Ives.
Let us not forget the wonderful light which has to be seen to be believed and has brought many artists to the area.
Visits to the famous Tate St Ives, Barbara Hepworth Museum and Garden, and the Leach pottery are a must.
Meander along the tiny cobbled streets and you can also enjoy some unique shopping for art, pottery, jewellery, clothes and food amongst many more.
St Ives is not only a great place to stay, it's also a good base from which to visit other parts of Cornwall with easy access to all main roads.
