Holidays in Carbis Bay

If you’re looking for a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives, then consider Carbis Bay, offering a quieter location for guests. Enjoy outstanding views, relaxing on the golden sandy beach and walking the coastal path, which is perhaps the most beautiful stretch in the county.

Choose a holiday in Carbis Bay and you’ll be spoilt by endless views and a sweeping coastline. Spend your days relaxing on the beach, or walk the coastal path into St Ives. Located between Hayle and St Ives, you’ll be spoilt for places to visit, from endless golden beaches, to Cornish cafes and family attractions.

Top tip

Take a ride on the St Ives branch line, one the most picturesque train journeys in Britain!

Carbis Bay beach

A holiday in Carbis Bay means you’ll have one of the most beautiful beaches just a short walk away from your holiday cottage. With crystal-clear turquoise waters, enjoy swimming and other watersports, with kayaks and paddleboards available to hire from the watersports centre at the beach. You’ll also be in close proximity to the golden sandy beaches at Lelant and Hayle and the popular beaches in St Ives; you could try a different beach every day of the week!

Walks in Carbis Bay

Leave the car at home and take the 20 minute walk into St Ives, enjoying the views along the way. This gentle walk is a must at least once during your stay.

For nature lovers, the Steeple Woods Nature Reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and plants. Relax and explore the forty acre space which overlooks St Ives.

For the more adventurous soul, the St Michael’s Way is a 12.5 mile trek starting at nearby Lelant, and finishing up at the stunning St Michael’s Mount in Marazion. If the walk back doesn’t seem too appealing, you can always ride the open-top bus all the way back!

Wonderful stay at Bosuns Whistle apartment, really enjoyed our visit and hopefully we’ll return. Given the property description states sea glimpses we were pleasantly surprised at the good sea views that the property gave. The property was of a very high standard with a quality finish.

Love this apartment. Have stayed before and we will absolutely stay again! Great location, large parking space, really lovely furnishings, just a perfect home from home.

Beautiful property and perfect location with easy access to St Ives and West Cornwall.

Aspects service was over and above. We needed to change our dates at the eleventh hour and this was dealt with quickly and agreed by the property owner.

Can’t wait to return!

We enjoyed our stay in Carbis Bay and Bosuns Whistle was a beautiful apartment. Nicely furnished and a very well equipped kitchen. It was Bright and immaculately clean with fresh white quality linens. A private parking space right outside your door. Perfectly positioned for buses into St Ives. There some good restaurants within walking distance and a Tesco just down the road.

This was our first time at Bosun’s and we were not disappointed. The place was beautifully decorated and being very spacious was an added bonus to an already beautiful apartment. We’ll definitely be coming back!!!

Lovely spacious and clean apartment. Had everything we wanted there. The view from the balcony looking out to the sea was beautiful, we loved it. We used the path next to the apartments to walk down to the sea which was very handy. Carbis bay beach is very pretty, soft sand and clear calm sea. The train ride to St Ives is very scenic but much easier to go by bus as it's stops right outside. St Ives is lovely but gets very busy so Carbis Bay is perfect for us and peaceful to come back to. The parking space is also a must have so this was great for us

Lovely apartment, great location, easy to book. Would love to return again. Thank you so much xx

Nice apartment but expensive.

We loved this modern open plan apartment with views at the back towards the sea and a wooded area. The kitchen is well equipped with all amenities with a washer/ dryer in the hall closet. One bedroom has an en-suite with a shower and the main bathroom has a bath, so plenty of choice. It’s in a good location that’s not far from a supermarket and the train station that takes you to St Ives.

Had a very relaxing week at no4 St Margarets at the end of September. It’s an excellent apartment in a great location for walking or taking the bus to St Ives. Fixtures and fittings are very good quality. Rooms, apart from the second bedroom, are large. Furnishings are comfortable and the bed so so relaxing after a day out. Layout of this apartment gives an outlook through the trees towards the Carbis Bay. Wish I’d taken my binoculars! Parking behind the remote gates is really good for the area. Top marks to the housekeeper for a sparkling, clean apartment.

Super apartment, everything we needed. Will definitely return.

Lovely apartment, beautiful and light with so many windows. Lovely furnishings too and very comfortable. Perfect location for walking into St Ives or exploring the beautiful coastal paths. Secure large parking space also ideal. Would highly recommend and will most definitely book again!

Lovely apartment, well furnished and nicely decorated. Would highly recommend.

Lovely location, short (but steep) walk from the beach. Clean, light and airy accommodation. More than sea glimpses when the trees aren’t out!

Luxury two bed apartment, with all mod cons , with a view of the sea. Own parking space is a big plus . Easy walk into St Ives , or take the 2 min train journey from Beautiful Carbis bay

Absolutely love this apartment. Our 2nd time staying here, feels so like home and we can't wait to return. It's a great location for the beautiful beach and base for exploring further.

Wonderful stay at Bosuns Whistle with our 7 and 4 year old. Good location, easy walk down to the beach but quite steep on the way back so be prepared! Fabulous apartment with all the latest modern facilities and the allocated parking was a bonus. We will definitely return,

Nice apartment -comfortable. Lovely furnishings but the property including the balcony gets little/no sunlight. Also we had no internet access for the last 4 days we stayed in the property which also meant no tv and no music. I wouldn’t return to this property.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were so sorry that you experienced the issue with the Wi-Fi. We tried to get this resolved as quickly as possible for you, but we were completely reliant on the internet provider getting the fault sorted out. This isn't the norm for this property, but unfortunately third-party services like this, can fail sometimes. We hope that you still had a nice break here despite your disappointment. Tanya, Customer Services

Such a gorgeous apartment with everything you could need, in a perfect location just outside of st Ives. It was immaculate, almost to the point where everything looked brand new. All the appliances were of high standard and the parking space right outside our front door made our holiday with two young children much easier and stress-free. Will definitely recommend to anyone visiting carbis bay and would come back in a heartbeat. Thankyou!

A great holiday in this comfortable high spec apartment. Everything for our visit was well prepared and presented in line with current restrictions. Good location. We'll hopefully be back.

Absolutely loved this apartment, it felt like home straight away. Great location, we had a fabulous holiday and can't wait to return!

A lovely apartment, thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Very handy having a good, safe car parking space close by.

Very clean and well equipped.

Wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

We are a family of 4 with 2 children under 10. The apartment is new and is really comfortable and the view from the lounge is beautiful, a mixture of woods and the sea. We did make use of the kitchen quite a bit and it’s very well equipped. The location of the apartment was good as we spent most of our time in St Ives which is a lot busier. Also the convenience of parking close to our private entrance was definitely a bonus especially when there was a lot to unload from the car. Overall I would definitely recommend Bosun’s Whistle. Staying in a lovely apartment only made our stay in Cornwall a lot more enjoyable.
