Situation - Overlooking the 'Blue Flag' beach at Porthminster and opposite The St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa, 6 Albany Terrace occupies a fantastic position with magnificent elevated views over vast expanses of St. Ives Bay to Godrevy Lighthouse. Home to the award winning Porthminster Beach Cafe, Porthminster Beach is a family favourite, renowned for its safe swimming waters.
A short stroll takes you to the maze of narrow streets lined by fishermans cottages together with an eclectic range of shops, quality restaurants and galleries. The picturesque granite harbour is of course a focal point for many, complete with local fishing boats that still moor alongside the piers and its own sandy beach. On the opposite side of St. Ives Island is Porthmeor Beach which faces the Atlantic Ocean and is a favourite with surfers.
At nearby Lelant, overlooking the Hayle Estuary, there is a spectacular Links Golf Course with views stretching up towards Godrevy Lighthouse. A scenic branch railway line links Carbis Bay and St. Ives with the main London to Penzance line at nearby St. Erth.
