Not to much effort is needed to walk up to the top you get fantastic views from the top of both St Ives itself an the surrounding area. There is a little chapel at the top but it wasn't open when we visited.

Escape from the madding crowd by walking onto the island. Watch a kestrel hunting, goldfinches, starlings, sparrows and rabbits - a nice change from gulls! The only noise if the sound of the waves breaking on the rocks - it has to be done

Came here with my girlfriend and friends to see the views and what awesome views they are! You can lie down peacefully and watch everyone and thing move around you. Definitely visit for half an hour!

This hill on a promontory overlooks the sea and St Ives providing fabulous views. It is also a good spot to let your dog stretch its legs.

Great views of the water, town, and countryside, with a nice old chapel (not open) and a local maritime safety facility in an old coast artillery installation. What I really liked is that they had stairs and a path down to the rocks in some...More

But worth the effort. The path around the island gave a fabulous selection of views. Rocky out crops next to beautiful beaches the view was stunning and varied all within a short walk (or roll).

This is a great place for an early morning or late evening walk as the sunrise/sunset views are wonderful.
