Due to a more sheltered aspect, tucked away from the prevailing ocean winds, this area has an abundance of mature trees - somewhat a rarity on the otherwise rugged north Cornish coast making the area a natural home to a diversity of flora and fauna. A small network of footpaths, including a particularly attractive stretch of the Cornish Coastal Footpath, puts self catering cottages in Treloyhan within 10 minutes’ walk of Carbis Bay, 15 minutes of St Ives and all of the secluded coves and rocky outcrops in between.
A perfect location for those who enjoy walking, bird watching or a spot of fishing! Porthminster Beach is a mere 10 minute walk along the coast path towards St Ives and is home to the renowned Porthminster Beach Café where you can enjoy a light lunch, cream tea or, for a real treat, a special evening meal while you watch the sunset.

Held on the anniversary of the consecration of the Parish Church of St Eia in 1434 AD, Feast Day offers visitors to witness - and even join in with - some centuries-old traditions. A morning precesison led by the Mayor to bless the Well of St Eia. Following this, the Mayor will 'Hurls the Silver Ball' into a crowd of children who assemble on the beach below. The one who returns the ball to the Guildhall steps by midday receives a silver coin. In the afternoon the Mayor then throw pennies from the balcony of the Guildhall for children to collect.
