  • Overview
  • More Info

The remains of Wheal Dream tin mine overlook this quiet, sandy beach. Situated between the harbour and Porthgwidden beach, Bamaluz often goes un-noticed by the majority of visitors. The beach-itself is fairly sheltered from all but an onshore breeze but the high walls can also block out some of the sun. At high tide the beach is also greatly reduced in size and can almost disappear on a spring high. It is also just below the St Ives Museum.

This small rocky and sandy cove is one of the few beaches in St Ives that allows dogs all year. So, if your four-footed friend enjoys rock pooling with you, this is the place for you.
