Carbis Bay, St Ives
(4.7/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • Had such fun with the kayaks, run by knowledgeable and helpful guy would definitely go again and great value for money 
  • Great little place to stay just outside St Ives ... very pretty and very quiet compared to bustling St Ives but only a £2 return train ride into town ... one stop and about 5 mins !! The best of both ...  more »
