Last year Pad and I visited Cornwall together for a friends wedding, and stopped in the little town of St Ives. I’ve never been a big fan of UK beach resorts (I prefer getting on a plane for my sunshine fix…) but even I have to admit, St Ives was just GORGEOUS.
Some of the Cornwall beaches we saw down there were on a par with some of the beaches I’ve come across in Australia and LA. They were seriously lovely.
We’re already planning a second trip for this summer (it’s only a train ride away, so why the hell not?) but for now I’m just dreaming of the sunshine and daydreaming over the gorgeous photos I took of the beaches.
As newly confessed Cornwall converts – please please leave me some recommendations for other beautiful spots of Cornish beachyness! We’re looking to explore a little bit more this summer, so I’d love to know abut even more hidden gems.
Love the photos Elle, esp of the boats.
(A suggestion: you should probably starting water marking your photos 🙂 )
Thanks so much Neha! x
I grew up near St.Ives – love the place and almost always visit when I am back in the motherland – great photo’s
Oh you’re so lucky to have grown up near so many gorgeous beaches! Did you learn to surf? 🙂 x
Wow. Stunning photos! Planning my summer weekend there now..!
Aw thanks Gem! Let me know if you enjoy it… I’m sure you will, it’s gorgeous! x
Hey! It’s so nice to see and read a lovely post on Cornwall! I live in Perranporth, up the coast from St. Ives and it has a beautiful 9 mile sandy beach! I love your blog but it’s nice to see a local post on here as well! Keep up the great work! 😀
