Bamaluz Beach

Bamaluz Beach
Bamaluz Beach

The remains of Wheal Dream tin mine overlook this quiet, sandy beach. Situated between the harbour and Porthgwidden beach, Bamaluz often goes un-noticed by the majority of visitors.
The beach itself is fairly sheltered from all but an onshore breeze but the high walls can also block out some of the sun. At high tide the beach is also greatly reduced in size and can almost disppear on a spring high.
It is also just below the St Ives Museum.
