Well worth the walk up for the most amazing views, it can be a bit windy on top and a little slippery, so take care and enjoy :)

Even out of season this is stunning place worth the climb up. Equally mesmerizing are the views out to sea, across to Porthmeor or back into town. And if the sun peaks out, sitting on the granite benches can be a sheltered oasis. Love it

Nice easy walk around the island. Very pretty viewpoint. Would visit again. Was lucky to have a sunny day today!

Beautiful chapel situated on ‘the island’ St Ives. This view is easy walking distance from the harbour. In January we walked this with a newborn in a pram easily. Well worth the short walk to experience the views.

Great location. Can get away from the St Ives crowds as never very busy. A pity you cannot go inside the chapel. Qite a steep walk up to it.

A beautiful little church, high up on the hill, with beautiful views all around. Would loved to have looked inside but like a lot of churches today it was locked. Sit on the seat outside and take in the views.

Nice short walk not far from a car park. Good views when you get to the top. Lots of colourful lichen on the stones and remnants of flowering thrift.

There is a wide tarmac path with regular benches leading up from the car park, it's not too steep that side either so it should be okay for trundler or wheelchair access.
