Is it safe to go in the sea?

The school your child is travelling with will have clear rules around whether students can go in the sea or not.

If they do, all the beaches in St Ives are lifeguarded from early in the morning until dusk. It also stays shallow for a long way out so your child does not need to be a strong swimmer to mess around in the water or even participate in a surf lesson where they very rarely find themselves in water past waist level and never out of their depth.
