St Ives is an active town with a huge variety of easily accessible outdoor pursuits on both land or sea. Pick your favourite beach, in town, or find one to yourself further out, to sunbathe, have a dip, or just relax. For the more energetic, learn to surf, stand-up paddle board, or rent a kayak. Boat trips to nearby seal colonies are another great way to get out on the water.
For an invigorating walk, head out on the Coastal Path or inland on any number of idyllic country paths. Embrace nature in the extreme by coasteering; the active sport of exploring a rocky coastline that involves climbing, jumping and swimming. Grab a pair of binoculars and go birdwatching at nearby natural beauty spots and sanctuaries. For bike enthusiasts there is a vast network of cycle routes to suit all standards, across all terrains.
Anyone for tennis? There are several outdoor all-weather courts available to book. Or go crown green bowling with spectacular views overlooking the ocean. For a pure adrenalin rush head for the go-karting track. Pony trekking and horse riding are also available. Throughout the year there is an ever-changing list of events and activities to suit all interests.
