As you can see from this fantastic aerial photo St Ives is virtually surrounded by sandy beaches. This photo was taken towards the high tide and when the tide is out there is much, much more sand with the harbour becoming virtually empty of water. You can also see that this photo was taken in the height of summer with the beaches busy. Winter is a different story and it ispossible to have the whole beach to yourself at times.
