    “We have been coming to Men an Tol for many years and love it so much that we will come back again and again.”

    It is so comfortable and very much a home from home for us. The current owners have made good improvements and we especially liked the updated information booklet which made everything easy to understand. It would have been top marks across the board except for the really cramped en suite bathroom. We are quite small people so it’s ok for us but ‘normal’ to bigger people would not be able to use it . There is a shower room which is fine for anyone.

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.
