Park & Ride
St Ives in the summer months can be a nightmare for traffic and parking. We recommend you leave your car at the park and ride in Lelant, take a ten minute, scenic, old-fashioned train ride on this beautiful stretch of coastline to St Ives and walk to Porthgwidden.
Take the M5 towards Exeter or Plymouth (take the A38 from Plymouth) join the A30 into Cornwall
Paddington London (First Great Western) to Penzance, Glasgow (Virgin) to Penzance, Alight at St Erth for St Ives
To Newquay, Taxi from Newquay, Call Ace Cars on 01736 797799
From the centre of St Ives make your way towards the Island and Porthgwidden Beach.
