Lelant Beach

Click here for bed and breakfast accommodation near Lelant Beach


Continuing on the coastal footpath and just out of St Ives is the little village of Lelant. Lelant has a splendid beach.

Porthkidney Beach

Three miles of golden sands backed by small sand dunes.
The beach is popular but because of its size never appears busy, it is a long way to the sea at low tide.
Parking is a brisk 5 minute walk away and is limited.
One word of warning – it is dangerous to bathe in or near the river estuary but safe between the flags.
Lifeguard service
To the west and around Hawk's Point can provide excellent surf, this is only when there is an extremely heavy sea and everywhere else is either too choppy or blown out. This is winter only as the summer months are rarely that rough.
No toilets



If you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the St Ives beaches this is the one for you, a lovely beach with plenty of room to move around.
