  • “Everything was as expected and as described in previous reviews.”

    We enjoyed our stay very much. Our only regret is that we didn’t/couldn’t book for 10 days, which should have been perfect.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. Our only regret is that we didn’t/couldn’t book for 10 days, which should have been perfect. One small point was there was only one toilet roll provided, which we didn’t notice until we’d almost run out. Tesco and a Costcutter, which are nearby, proved useful. Some of the apartments are owner occupied. The natives were friendly! We spoke with Sykes 2 or 3 times. They were very professional and helpful.

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.
