Further North there are the surfing beaches of Porthtowan, Perranporth and of course Fistral Beach at Newquay where the World Surfing Championships are held. Newquay also offers a variety of entertainment throughout the year.
Moving west from St Ives is the wonderfully scenic drive to Lands End, England’s most westerly point. This drive has been described as one of the Top Ten Scenic Drives in the World and is well worth the effort.

Of course there is also the Minack Theatre perched on top of the cliffs above the beach.

Plays run every night throughout the summer months; a glass of wine and a picnic complete this unforgettable experience.
