Gwithian Beach, St Ives

4.9
#5 of 17 in Outdoors in St Ives
Unwind at Gwithian Beach, a vast expanse of sand in Carbis Bay. This huge stretch has long shallows during low tide, making for great strolls and views. An offshore lighthouse on a tiny island adds to the scene, coupled by outcrops of rock and sand dunes. Climb and hike along high cliffs, or go windsurfing and kite surfing on the strong waves. The beach has a public restroom, cafe, shop, and windsurfing shack.
