“St Ives, formerly one of the most important pilchard fisheries in Cornwall, is now a very popular and charming holiday resort charterised by the old fishing quarter with its narrow steep cobbled streets, alleys and steps lines with stone cottages. Its setting and clarity of light led to its colonisation by artists, notably Ben Nicholosn and Barbara Hepworth in 1939. Beyond the harbour and Smeaton’s Pier, is The Island, a headland separating sheltered Porthgwidden Beach from Porthmeor Beach, popular for surfing.” – AZ
