Bamaluz Beach – A Dog Walking Beach In The Heart Of St Ives

If you have been to St Ives and walked around the coast, the chances are you have walked past Bamaluz Beach without knowing it!

Made famous by being featured in the “Soggy” books (a series of children’s books by local author Phil Moran), Bamaluz Beach is a small beach sitting in between Porthgwidden Beach and the Harbour.

You get down to it by a step of pretty steep steps just by the St Ives Museum at Wheal Dream. The beach is sandy at low tide, but it pretty much non-existant when the tide is in.

It is a brilliant beach for rockpooling and clambering over rocks and boulders. However, its real draw is that it is a dog friendly beach all year round. Therefore you will find it is VERY popular with dog walkers.

It is pretty sheltered as it faces East and gets a lot of sun during the day. However, the sun quickly goes behind the towering houses above the beach and is in shade later in the day.

Getting To Bamaluz Beach
