St Ives is one of Cornwall's most popular holiday resorts. Jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean, the town is home to five wonderful sandy beaches of which Porthmeor is one. Porthmeor has it all, from golden sand and azures waters to the internationally renowned Tate Gallery which overlooks the beach. Just minutes along cobbled streets from the town centre there's always plenty of activity on and around the beach whether it be soaking up the summer sun or surfing the winter waves. Porthmeor is also one of the best spots around to take in the sunset.
