Set between the towns of St Ives and Hayle, this Blue Flag beach is absolutely pristine and offers visitors of all ages a sublimely scenic spot to enjoy. Accessed via a fairly steep walk from the coast path down, it is worth the descent; however for those who prefer a gentler approach, there is a pretty train that winds along the South West Coast Path from Hayle, stopping in St Ives.
The walk from here is a gentle 25 minutes with spectacular coastal view along the way, so mornings can begin with a coffee and croissants in town before heading to the beach for a blissful day on the beach.
Offering a variety of water-based activities, visitors can enjoy kayaking, canoeing and paddle-boarding with lessons and equipment hire as well as boat tours and sea safaris available. Carbis Bay’s main street bustles with an array of shops including a hairdresser, pharmacy and mini supermarket.
