Porthgwidden Beach near Carbis Bay in St. Ives is a small and secluded beach with plenty to offer. We parked in the Island Car Park, a small challenge to get to given the narrow roads that led to it.
The small and sheltered sand beach featuring a cafe & a row of permanent double storey beach hut.
The hut and cafe is right next to the car park. From there you can access the Porthwidden Beach. For a small sandy beach it is graced with a row of double storey permanent beach huts. On a nice summers day, the row of rentable 2-storey huts with deck chairs would come in handy. Due to low number of visitors in the winter months, these were closed. It also meant that with next to no visitors, we were able to capture the beauty of Porthgwidden Beach in a quiet and peaceful setting.
A nice little beachfront cafe with sun terrace section is situated at one end of the huts. Access to the sandy beach is via steps on either ends or a path next to the cafe.
