Waking up in St Ives


As the winter is ending and spring is on the horizon, one of the most popular attractions in St Ives is to enjoy the beautiful surrounding white sand beaches. One of the best times to see their true glory is early in the morning. There’s nothing like than walking on fresh sand and being the first to leave your footprints. Many of our guests love to get up early and watch the spectacular sunrise rising over the bay. The Island is a perfect place to view this with panoramic views of the bay, town and out to sea. We love taking our dogs out early to witness St Ives waking up, spotting the keen wild water swimmers, watching the fisherman leaving the harbour and enjoying the wafts of freshly made pasties. If you’re lucky you may even catch a cheeky seal following the boats trying to capture a stray fish.
