The Sands

The Sands Apartments are a prestigious development of contemporary apartments of various designs, ideally positioned to maximise the views across St. Ives Bay and convenient for the Blue Flag accredited Carbis Bay beach.

Nearby is the the South West Coastal Path which extends around Cornwall, locally you can enjoy the stunning coastal scenery along the pathways to St Ives or to Lelant and Hayle.

The apartments at The Sands have been thoughtfully designed and incorporate numerous luxurious features such as open plan living areas with mood lighting, fully fitted designer kitchens and sumptuous tiled bathrooms. Each has been tastefully furnished to a very high standard, offering contemporary holiday accommodation for the discerning visitor to Cornwall.
