Radiating from the harbour, where fishing boats still moor alongside granite piers, is a maze of narrow cobbled streets lined by fishermens' cottages and an eclectic range of shops, restaurants and galleries.
Surrounding the town are a variety of sandy beaches each with a character of its own. Porthmeor Beach and the world famous Tate Gallery face the Atlantic Ocean and is a favourite with the surfers, whilst the beaches facing St Ives Bay include Harbour Beach, Porthminster, Carbis Bay and Porthkidney Sands, much loved by families.
