    “We enjoyed our week at Blue Horizons.”

    Fabulous apartment with wonderful sea views which we never tired of. Not the weather for sitting on the balcony sadly. Very clean and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Just one suggestion for guests when first arriving. Need to tell people that the actual key collection point for the gate operation is around the corner of the gatepost - not the first key box you see on the front above the intercom!

The property

The view from the living and dining areas of this beautiful apartment is truly breathtaking, stretching right across the golden sands of the award-winning Carbis Bay Beach and out to St Ives. Slide open the glass doors, step out onto your private balcony and you can see where the inspiration for the name Blue Horizons originated. This is just a wonderful outdoor space to enjoy an alfresco Cornish Breakfast with the most stunning of seaside vistas as a backdrop. Step back inside and you'll find the dining table and the two comfy sofas have been perfectly positioned to enjoy natures beautiful coastal setting too. Comfortably sleeping four in two bedrooms this wonderful apartment has a relaxing, seaside theme running throughout.

About the location


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

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside village 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 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. The quayside town of Hayle also isn't far and is home to activities for the all the family, including a golf and a wildlife sanctuary. The Godrevy Nature Reserve and Penwith Heritage Coast are also within easy reach from Carbis Bay, providing outdoors and watersports plans with even more activities to partake in, including coasteering and birdwatching.
