A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Carbis Bay

The quiet, unassuming sister of St Ives, Carbis Bay is only one mile west from its famous neighbour and overlooks the bay to the iconic lighthouse just off-shore at Godrevy Point, four miles further west across the golden sands of the Towans. Carbis Bay is a lot quieter all year round and boasts three of the finest sandy beaches in the area, Carbis Bay beach, Porthkidney Sands and Hawkes Point, perfect for families and couples. Or if you want to sample the delights of St Ives it delivers the best route in. Leave your car behind and catch the train or stroll along the coast path, you will not be disappointed as you round the final corner.
