Discover Hayle

Surrounding a beautiful estuary on the edge of St Ives Bay in West Cornwall, archaeological excavations of Greek and Roman pottery suggest Hayle was an important trading port for tin thousands of years ago and during the industrial revolution copper smelting flourished in the town, the importance of which saw the town’s harbour and townscape being granted World Heritage Site status in 2006. Hayle was the first town in Cornwall to be awarded Walkers Are Welcome status which means the footpaths and trails around the town are well maintained and well-marked and with plenty of rugged countryside around, it’s an ideal place to pull on your hiking boots. To the west lie 3 miles of golden sands and with a constant breeze off the Atlantic, the area is well-known for its surfing, windsailing and blokarting. Hayle’s wide estuary, managed by the RSPB and the UK’s most south westerly, is an important stopping off point for migratory birds.
