Having been voted as one of the best views in the country and being right here on our door step I thought it would be a nice idea to take a little time and have a look a one of the things that makes St Ives special.
St Ives Bay, viewed across the Harbour and looking towards Gwithian is truly a stunning view. Instagram is awash with photo’s taken by holiday makers and locals alike. Just take a look at #harbourstives #stivesharbour #stives – I’ve lived here for most of my life and still on my way to work I like to stop and Instagram the view… it’s different everyday whatever the weather.
Today, looking across the Harbour it is hard to imagine it as the bustling fishing port it once was. These days there is only a handful of working boats left, moored up alongside the fleet of pleasure craft earning their living taking holiday makers on fine weather fishing trips or out to visit our local seal colony at the cunningly named Seal Island!
Needless to say no trip to St Ives is complete without a walk around the Harbour, a coffee at any one of the numerous barristers dotted around and, if it is after 12, a beer outside The Sloop as the kids play on the harbour beach.
