The best time to rock pool is an hour before low tide so the joys of the local marine life are available to see (and respect!) for a few hours before the tide returns to wet your toes. There are some amazing places to rock pool in St Ives and we recommend Porthminster beach below the Pedn Olva hotel and then onto St Ives Harbour beach below Lambeth Walk. You’ll need to roll up your trousers or wear wellies if you want to cross the water to the harbour beach!
