Hayle (a.k.a. The Bluff)

Located in St Ives bay Hayle is regarded as one of Cornwall's premier kitesurfing locations. Sadly Hayle harbour have now restricted access to kitesurfers in the river mouth and the surrounding area under their jurisdiction at all times, but kitesurfing is still permitted on the right hand side of the beach from blackrocks, where the lifeguard hut is situated, onwards towards gwithian and also in the lagoons that fill up on the beach in the non restricted area. Please refer to the signs for more detailed information before you go out on the water. In the summer months from 10.00 - 17.00 there is an RNLI flagged swimming area, please take care to avoid this. Once the tide starts coming in the beach becomes narrow and there are high cliffs downwind so time to pack up and go for a pint in the bluff inn (car park fee returned with ticket and purchase).
