A postcard setting right at the water, St Ives on the western shore of St Ives Bay is hopelessly romantic.
Take a barefoot walk along the beach to get a first glimpse of this quaint old village which deserves its reputation as best seaside town in England. White and blue houses seem to be toppling over each other as they meet the water’s edge. Cobble stone streets lined with jewelry and craft shops, potteries, art galleries like the Tate St Ives and arty boutiques are there to be explored. Enjoy the bohemian flair that has remained alive throughout the decades.
