St Ives: The UK’s ‘best seaside town’

Arguably one of the best-known Cornish holiday resorts, St Ives is a beautiful holiday destination. The perfect balance for families, couples, singles and groups of friends, visitors continue to keep returning to the area year after year. With stunning natural beauty, wonderful hospitality and excellent access to the rest of West Cornwall, we think it’s the ideal place to visit all year round.

Best dog-friendly Cornwall beaches

From popular spots including Fistral and Watergate Bay in Newquay, through to secret coves and bays that you may never have heard of before now, we've done the homework to let you know which Cornish beaches allow dogs. Read on to see the full list of beaches where dogs are allowed all year round, where there are restrictions, and where there are annual bans.

A beautiful town

While there is no denying that St Ives is naturally beautiful, defining what a traditional Cornish seaside town should be like, the town has grown into so much more than that, becoming a renowned holiday destination; Tate St Ives has been one of the main reasons for this. One of only two Tate galleries outside of London, it kickstarted the now buzzing art scene within the town, and its recent expansion reaffirms the town's status as the art capital of Cornwall.

That being said, people still flock to this town for its sheer beauty. On a sunny day, there are few better spots to be in the South West, with the crystal clear waters lapping up onto the sandy beach, local sailing boats bobbing in the harbour, and glorious views across the sea. The great quality of restaurants throughout the town, along with the surf at Porthminster beach, make this a fantastic holiday destination.
