Carbis Bay Tourist Information

Carbis Bay

Carbis Bay

West Cornwall’s Carbis Bay around one mile east of St Ives is renowned as one of the world’s most beautiful beach bays. This spectacular Blue Flag beach owned by the Carbis Bay Hotel has acres of golden sands, crystal clear turquoise waters and offers safe family friendly bathing. Around the Bay you’ll find a wide choice of luxurious apartments, cottages and spa hotel retreats many of which are just yards from the waterfront. The beach here is one of a string of magical beaches which make up the great sweep of St Ives Bay.

Carbis Bay is the perfect year round peaceful retreat and a great base for family beach holidays. A small seaside village, Carbis Bay nestles between Porthminster Point to the north and Hawke’s Point to the east. The famous waterfront Carbis Bay Hotel dates from 1894, and behind the village sits the distinctive Knill Monument, affectionately known locally as ‘The Steeple’. St Ives is within easy reach via a 3 minute train journey from the cliff top Carbis Bay railway station, or head off along the scenic South West Coast Path. Whether on the train or on foot, the coastal views are magnificent between Carbis Bay and St Ives.
