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.

Seaside chalets are wonderful for memorable family holidays and most also welcome couples for that special relaxed break away together.
