If a Cemetery is a Tourist Attraction, then this is a good one

Not sure this should be labelled as a tourist attraction - it is a cemetery where people are still being buried. But it is in the most fabulous location with wonderful views.

Walked through this lovely Cemetery on the way to Clodgy View Terrace, this is a very old Cemetery and although on a steep slope it is built on terraces, making it easier to walk around. A wonderful view from every aspect in this Cemetery, well worth a visit.

Wow! What a location for your final resting place. Up high in a cliff overlooking the beautiful white sands and turquoise seas. I don't think it is possible to find a better cemetery view

Located at the top of Barnoon Hill this old cemetery has some head stones dating back to the mid 18th Century. Some detail the marine history of St. Ives by " lost at sea" and "a maritimer ". The graveyard itself is like many in the UK, not well maintained. Beautiful view of Porthmeor Beach.

on a fairly steep hill this graveyard has some amazing views. The two connected little churches are generally closed but you can walk around everywhere - it is right next to probably the best beach and a car park in St Ives so you are likely to pass it.

We have a personal interest in this cemetery because it was one of my late sister's favourite places in Cornwall. Very steep to walk up or down from the beach but if you like to wander round cemeteries the names and stories on the gravestones are very interesting.

A lovely spot on the headland between bays. Worth a walk and wander. Close to The Tate so an easy detour along the way.
