The Cornwall peninsula: from St Ives to Padstow

By car, 91 km, 1 day

Travelling from Saint Ives to Padstow, you go along the coast from west to east. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the Cornish coast, with its sandy beaches nestling in creeks and its windswept moors. Saint Ives is a typical small fishing harbour, full of life and colour. It is a place much visited by artists, including Turner and Whistler. The most distinctive quarter is the Island, a rocky outcrop at the end of the bay. Padstow, meanwhile, was once Cornwall's only safe refuge. Its quays are lined with old houses.
