Catch the train to St Ives – instead of battling with traffic & expensive car parking, go to St Erth train station (just off the A30) and catch the most scenic train route to St Ives. The train snakes along the edge of the cliff overlooking a favourite surf spot – Hawkes point which you access by walking across the train tracks.
A walk to Chapelporth along the coastal path west of here and back to the village over the beacon is a favourite. It takes about 3 hours in total including a tea & snack stop at Chapelporth cafe run by Robin. Chapelporth is a beautiful cove just west of here, in high season dogs are not allowed on the beach. At low tide you can walk along the beach to the next settlement Porthtowan. Be aware of when the tides turn though, it can be dangerous. A tide timetable is kept at reception, so just ask!
A heads up: in high season dogs are not allowed on the beach at Chapel Porth, try Perranporth or St Agnes as a alternative for a walk with your pooch.
