  • "This was a lovely apartment, we have stayed at The sands before, but in a different apartment, so had a little bit of a heads up with directions and keys etc…."

    .fantastic views, perfect kitchen and bathrooms and everything was beautifully clean . Two little things we couldn’t get the patio door to unlock in the bedroom however much we tried , so had a few very warm nights and also the car park lights are so bright , so being on the middle floor , even with blackout curtains the light shone through a bit too much . ( we had penthouse last year , top floor ) But it would not put us off from staying again , in fact we are already trying to see if we can get a crafty week away in September. Thankyou and hope to visit again , and sgain

    The use of spa facilities at Carbis Bay really made it a special break. The only negative was the intercom did not work, with only 1 key we had to stay up for our guests. Would return again and also book with Carbis Bay holidays.

  • ""We enjoyed Silver Sands, it was clean and comfortable with wonderful sea views, and it met our expectations."

    We especially enjoyed being able to catch the train into St Ives and had a very good lunch at the Porthmeor Beach Café. We also enjoyed an excellent cream tea at Rosemurgy Farm near Morvah on the road to Lands End." J. Ward

    TestimonialAug 2017

  • ""We had an excellent stay at Silver Sands."

    Carbis Bay train station is very close to the apartment and it's only a few mintues to St Ives along the coastline, much easier than driving there and trying to find a parking space. Whilst staying at Silver Sands we visited Kynance Cove, the Minack Theatre and the Bedruthan Steps. We also ate at plenty of good restuarants, including the Badger Inn (along the road from the apartment in Lelant), Cherry Trees (Padstow), Manning's (Truro)." J. Cannon

    TestimonialJul 2017

  • ""This is the second time we have stayed in this Silver Sands and the standard was as high as ever, everything was spotless and the apartment is exceptionally equipped."

    We made a suggestion last time we were there about a blind in the main bedroom and we were very impressed to find that this had been done on our return. Nothing is too much trouble and the service from booking to the end of the holiday was faultless. We caught the bus to Penzance and walked to Mousehole through Newlyn which is a very nice walk also the walk from Penzance to Marazion is flat with beautiful views." Lynda Vickerstaff

  • ""We had a great holiday in the Silver Sands apartment and found the facilities provided and cleanliness were excellent."

    The welcome touches such as the cream tea and milk in the fridge really were a thoughtful and welcome touch. We had a couple of meals at La Casita at the top of the road and found the standards of food and friendliness of the staff excellent. We used the train several times to get into St Ives and found this really easy and obviously much better than trying to find a parking place in the town." L. Cotchie

  • ""We had a wonderful week's holiday at Silver Sands."

    The apartment was beautifully clean and we really appreciated all the little welcoming touches left by Julie, the housekeeper - especially the Easter egg, scones and clotted cream! The apartment had everything we needed to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. Our two-year old daughter slept brilliantly well in the travel cot in the second bedroom and loved eating in the high chair provided. The fact that the apartment was on the same level as the carpark made access to and from the apartment really easy, even with a pushchair. We really enjoyed day-trips to the Eden Project, St Michael's Mount & Kynance Cove. In terms of toddler-friendly activities, we had a great time at Paradise Park in Hayle, meeting penguins close-up and feeding the goats and sheep. The Play Zone soft play area just down the road in Carbis Bay was also good for a rainy morning." The Hato Family

  • ""Silver Sands is fantastic and it was good to be back there (We were the first ever guests, according to the Visitors book!"

    ). We can recommend a couple of places to eat - the new Pizza Express in St Ives was very good; we also enjoyed Fish and Chips at the Balancing Eel - top place. We also had a great day out in Falmouth, which exceeded our expectations, plus Godrevy Point - there were around 100 seals on the beach around from the lighthouse - absolutely awesome. Good beach cafe up there too. We also dined at the new Italian at the Atlantic Hotel. Excellent food, nice people and family friendly." M. & J. Fraser

  • ""We really had a great stay in Silver Sands and Cornwall."

    The apartment is fabulous and of high quality. It was spotlessly clean on arrival. It was a nice feeling to come back to this beautiful apartment in the evening after a busy day of sightseeing. The walks we really enjoyed were to Zennor Head, Gurnards Head, Godrevy Point, Hells Mouth, Kynance Cove to Lizard. Pendennis castle at Falmouth is worth visiting as it offers fantastic views. The same goes for St. Michael´s Mount. We also enjoyed Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan very much. Our recommendations for restaurants would be La Casita at Carbis Bay and The Badger Inn. Both offer very friendly service and good food especially La Casita. Thanks for offerring this wonderful apartment." Hafiz Munshi

  • ""We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Silver Sands in Carbis Bay."

    The apartment was lovely, very clean and well equipped. We loved the walk from Carbis Bay to St Ives and found the train was very useful too to save taking the car to St Ives. It was quite a bargain for the 4 of us travelling together as we could use the Groupsave fare of £4 for the 4 of us for a return journey. It was fun to be in St Ives for November 5th, and to watch the fireworks on Porthminster Beach. We also enjoyed trips out to Lands End, the Minack theatre and the Lizard peninsula. Restaurants we particularly enjoyed were the Seafood Cafe & the Porthminster Beach Cafe, and we also had a superb lunch at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at Watergate Bay, about 45 minutes drive away." J.

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 village 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 delightful 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 branch line. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country; St Ives additionally makes for a great day out, with plenty of galleries to explore. The quayside town of Hayle also isn't far and is home to activities for the all the family, including a golf and a wildlife sanctuary. The Godrevy Nature Reserve and Penwith Heritage Coast are also within easy reach from Carbis Bay, providing outdoors and watersports plans with even more activities to partake in, including coasteering and birdwatching. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.
