Known locally as the 'secret beach' this is the other side of the Harbour wall between Smeatons Pier and Porthgwidden beach. The sand is only visible at low tide and is the site of the famous story Soggy Bear by local author Phil Moran.
This tiny beach is always quiet, even in summer and there are lots of huge boulders to clamber over. Reached by steep steps you can also visit the St Ives Museum perched at the top.
