    ““We have had a lovely week here in Beach Haven despite the weather!”

    This apartment is beautifully presented and comfortable and we were very happy to have Sky TV when the rain and wind drove us indoors! Carbis bay is a great place to stay. We can recommend The Gannet Pub for its food and The Sands Restaurant for Sunday lunch. The walk to St Ives is lovely, but its great to catch the train too!”

About the location


St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside town of Carbis Bay is best-known for its beautiful stretch of pure white sand. With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the boutique hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.
