Carbis Bay is an idyllic spot to dip a toe in the luxury coastal lifestyle. We’ve got a selection of contemporary apartments overlooking the family-friendly Carbis Bay beach, as well as luxury holiday homes within easy reach of the golden sands. All of our self-catering accommodation is decked out with mod cons including Wifi, and many of our properties come with complimentary access to the world-class C Bay spa.
An easy 30-minute walk along the South West Coast Path, or 5 minutes on the coastal railway from the buzzing town and beaches of St Ives, Carbis Bay offers a more serene scene than its neighbour. If you’re looking for laid-back beach life look no further than the pearly sands of Carbis Bay, with its blue flag water quality, seasonal lifeguards, low-tide rock-pooling and excellent beachside facilities.
Offering a plethora of water sports for the whole family, it’s the perfect place to castaway on a stand-up paddleboard, kayak or sailing boat, or come face-to-face with the fascinating sea life on a snorkelling adventure or a tour on a Hawaiian outrigger canoe. If you want to escape the beach-bound masses and walk the dog on a mile of crowd-free sands, hop along the coast path to the pristine Porthkidney Sands – dubbed ‘Happy Dog Beach’ by the locals.
Whether you board the coastal railway, hop in a taxi or walk the scenic mile along the South West Coast Path, it’s easy to reach the bounty of St Ives, from the internationally-renowned galleries and Michelin-starred foodie hotspots to the picturesque harbour beaches lined with ice cream kiosks, pasty outlets and cosy seaside pubs.
Yet while St Ives is hot on the heels of Padstow for its gastronomic reputation, Carbis Bay self catering holidays provide the opportunuty to explore the up-and-coming restaurants and is fast-chasing the fame of its neighbour. Lap up Mediterranean vibes and flavours at the Beach Club Restaurant, or tuck into rustic dishes and rare vintages in The Vineyard Table at Scarlet Wines.
