Carbis Bay, St Ives
(4.6/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Walk along the sandy shores of Carbis Bay, a bay that boasts a 1.6 km (1 mi) beach with spectacular views as well as recreational activities and accommodations. Try your hand at bodyboarding or have a relaxing meal at one of the many bayside eateries. Although the adjacent hotel owns the beach, you can enjoy it for the day free of charge. Explore the coastal footpath or take the train from nearby St. Ives to avoid paying the hotel’s parking fee. To visit Carbis Bay and get the most from your holiday in St Ives, create itinerary details personal to you using our St Ives trip itinerary planner.
