  • “The facilities at the apartment are superb and the location is stunning.”

    Its a shame the beach is not controlled better. Being woken up at 5-6 am each morning by dogs constantly yapping up and down the beach is not really conducive to a relaxing holiday. Also the life guards have chosen not to enforce excluding paddle boarders in the "swimmers only" section making it unsafe for children to swim on their own - I myself was hit by a paddle boarder in this supposedly safe area.

About the location

CARBIS BAY

St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside town 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 boutique 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 branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100 for this property. Access from the car parking area is down 8 steps and then up 8 steps to access the apartment.
