Beach Chalets
St Ives Bay in the West of Cornwall has a wide choice of beach chalets. From wooden beach cabins first built in the 1920s, to more recent holiday bungalows with every modern comfort and construction, you should find a seaside chalet to suit you.

Most of these chalets lie on the coast between Hayle and Gwithian scattered among the dunes ('towans' in Cornish), along the west-facing coast of the bay, to take advantage of glorious evening sun and sunsets.
