An idyllic stretch of golden sand, backed by mature woodland tumbling down to crystal-clear turquoise waters. It’s not hard to see why Carbis Bay is one of the most beautiful destinations on the Cornish coast. In the distance, Godrevy Lighthouse stands sentinel over St Ives Bay, and the meandering South West Coast Path promises rich rewards in both directions.
Our guests love Carbis Bay for its laid-back feel, with walking, water sports and beachside dining the only pressing things on their agendas. Your days here will be centred around the pristine beach, but further inland Carbis Bay has useful amenities including grocery stores, cafés, bars and restaurants, and backs onto beautiful open countryside.
Just a short walk, car journey or picturesque train ride from neighbouring St Ives, Carbis Bay feels a world away. Families with young children will love the safe, Blue Flag beach, and couples can revel in the romance of the setting – hiking by day for peace and solitude on Porthkidney sands, and by night dressing up and heading to the bustling bars and restaurants of St Ives Harbour.
Our Carbis Bay accommodation ranges from beachfront apartments,such as the Carbis Beach Apartments, to luxury villas and family-friendly retreats. Discover our unique coastal properties below.
