Other facilities covered include: camping and caravan sites, picnic areas and viewpoints, selected places of interest, rights of way information for England and Wales, National Trail and Recreational Path routes, and selected tourist information. The series is aimed mainly at the experienced map user but can be used by tourists and locals alike.
Location: North Coast - St. Ives
Porthmeor Beach is the westernmost of St. Ives' beaches. Waves crash in from the Atlantic Ocean which make Porthmeor Beach a favourite with surfers and bodyboarders. The beach is overlooked by the Tate Art Gallery (St. Ives). There are pleasant if short strolls up and around the Island as well as the start of the far more challenging coastal footpath route from St. Ives to Zennor. Another fine walk is along the coastpath and the nutgrove to Carbis Bay and Lelant. For more photographs and information on St. Ives click the following hyperlink St. Ives (Porth Ia).
