St Ives Pedn Olva Point, Cornwall


  • Located in St. Ives, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Pedn Olva Point is a stubby headland on the coast at St Ives. It pushes out into the sea between St Ives Porthminster Beach to the south and St Ives Harbour & Beach to the north. Given its location, the views are superb which is why we include it on PictureTheUK. There's a big viewing area with seats and a Barbara Hepworth sculpture. To the east and north east are St Ives Bay and Godrevy Island and Lighthouse
  • According to the Pedn Olva Hotel website, Pedn Olva means 'lookout on the headland'. (Source: Pedn Olva Hotel website to which we provide an external link). Pedn means head/end/top. Olva means lookout
  • Pedn Olva Point is by the South West Coast Path. The St Ives Bay Line terminates behind Porthminster Beach which is near the point. Pedn Olva Hotel is a superbly located hotel on the headland as you can see when browsing our 'Photo Gallery'
