      When we visited the tide was going out and from mid to low tide the harbour had no water and it is all beach. We have young children and this did make it a bit better than the busier beaches as it is a large area of flat sand for them to just run around.

      Not really a beach but a great location.
      If you want a beach in St Ives you would walk to the major ones nearby but this is the location for food and people watching.
