      A wonderful sandy beach, parking right on the beach, food available and a beach shop.
      Close to St.Ives and accessible by train as well.

    • Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
    • Good: generally good water quality
    • Sufficient: meets minimum standards
    • Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
