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!

A very well furnished flat with all comforts in mind for the guests. Coming from Switzerland we have the mountains but you have the unbeatable beaches, and ocean views from Ocean's Edge. M&M Switzerland

Fantastic & comfortable apartment with superb views over Carbis Bay, with St. Ives on the left & the stretch of golden sands at Hayle on the right.

Very well equipped with lovely soft towels & bedding.

Beautiful coastal footpaths to St. Ives or towards Hayle, with a half-hourly train service in either direction. The station is literally only a couple of minutes away but there is no train noise in the apartment.

Just wish this was mine so I could spend so much more time there!

Absolutely Stunning from the moment we walked through the door. We come Cornwall every year and Ocean's Edge is the best by far. Will definitely return x Maybe just need to sort parking out, as a few times we couldn't park because of beach goers parking for free.

We are so glad to hear that you liked this lovely property, though us and the property owner were very sorry to hear of the issues that you experienced with the parking there. We just wanted to reassure you that parking has not usually been an issue here; indeed, this is the first report that we have had of this, and the owner has got straight on to the management company there, asking them to improve the signs regarding private parking. This will be closely monitored going forward, so thank you for bringing this to our attention. Hopefully we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Most mornings St Ives walk sit and enjoy views, walk on sit and enjoy different views, Walk on sit and enjoy more Stunning views. Train back to apartment cup of tea and down to the beautiful beach at Carbis Bay for the afternoon.

Had days out to National trust car park at Godrevy lighthouse on the beach and walks around the nature reserve to see the wildlife. Absolutely Stunning.

This apartment was really nice, it had everything in it you needed and more and had a great welcome pack we weren't expecting including Rose prosecco which was brilliant. The views were fantastic of Carbis Bay, just a shame you dont get the sun on the Balcony long, but if you're always out it doesn't matter too much and in the summer when it's hot the shade will probably be welcome. It was a bit funny having people walking past the patio doors, as we hadn't realised beforehand it is communal. It's only a few mins to the beach but we couldn't walk it as my partner wouldn't have been able to walk back up the steep hill. We managed to get in the small car park one day instead just to go on the beach. There is only very expensive restaurants there, no cheaper cafes or ice cream stalls. We ventured out and about by car each day and found cheaper places to eat. The train is good to take if you want to go to St Ives. All in all a great holiday.

Ocean’s Edge is in an excellent location with amazing views across St Ives Bay. The apartment is very well equipped for a short or longer stay. We had a fabulous week and, even though it was December, we had really good weather.

Good but expensive.

We are glad to hear you liked this property but sorry that you felt it a little expensive. St Ives and Carbis Bay are quite expensive areas to rent in, compared to other areas of the country, but we try to ensure that properties are priced competitively and accordingly, taking into account many factors including location, views, availability of parking, number of bedrooms, decor and so on, and we try to provide a wide range of properties that will cater for a variety of tastes and budgets. We do hope that you found that it suited your needs and thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Customer Service

Absolutely fabulous apartment with fantastic views across the bay. Everything you need on arrival tea bags, coffee, fresh milk in fridge. Great walk in shower and comfortable bed. Very close to train station ( no train noise ) which you can travel 3 mins to St Ives for a £1! Or travel to St Erth and connect to train or bus to travel further.
Definitely go back love it !

Ocean's Edge is in an excellent spot, just above the beach, less than a 5 minute walk down, and just beside Carbis Bay railway station which gives you easy access to St Ives. We hardly used the car at all while we were there.

The appartment itself was extremely well equipped and very comfortable, a real home from home.

Location of this property is amazing. It is well presented and welcoming. A greast base for exploring. Mr and Mrs Clarke.
