Porthmeor

Porthmeor beach, Cornwall

Porthmeor Beach is the westernmost of St. Ives' beaches and is a favourite with surfers and bodyboarders. It lies behind the town and is overlooked by the Tate St. Ives Art Gallery and Visitor Attraction.

North facing, Porthmeor Beach is bounded to the west by Carrack Du and Clodgy Point; to the east by St. Ives Island. Consisting of fine golden sand the beach is still quite large even at high tide and, along with Bamalüaut;z, is the favoured destination for surfers.

All the usual facilities are found in the town. RNLI Lifeguards patrol Porthmeor from May until the end of September as well as during the Easter Holiday and the autumn half term week.

A seasonal dog ban applies on Porthmeor between Easter Day and 30th September.
