Everyone's favourite beach, gently shelved and sheltered, ideal for families. You’ll
only get surf here on the windiest of days. Clean golden sands lapped by a translucent
turquoise sea. It doesn’t matter what vista you choose, what time of day or whatever
the weather, its just plain beautiful. Facilities here include: a beach cafe, beach
restaurant, beach shops, deck chair & wind break hire, beach hut hire, putting green,
tug of war and games on beach (high summer), toilets and public car park above beach.
The beach is policed by life guards and is accessed via a few steps/ramp.
If you’ve got a surf board then this is the beach to head for. North/North west facing,
overlooked by the Tate Gallery and The Island. Clean golden sands. I would recommend
a visit here at dusk as the sunsets are fantastic. Step around the corner onto The
Digey and there you’ll find surf and surfer silhouetted by a setting ball of fire...
Breathtaking stuff. The beach is close to the town amenities and boasts a well renowned
beach restaurant, beach shop, surf board hire, beach hut hire and toilets close by.
Small, gently shelved and sheltered beach situated on the south side of ‘The Island’.
Popular with families as you have the peace of mind that your children will be in
full view wherever you pitch your towel! Close to town, with beach cafe and a very
nice restaurant overlooking the beach. Toilets are at the top of the ramp which leads
down to the beach. This has become famous locally over the years for sand sculptures
by local artists and I must say are very life like. Car parking is nearby at ‘The
Island’ car park.
Sheltered and picturesque, again popular with families as it has calm waters most
of the time. Crystal clear turquoise and gently shelved. Very similar in size and
shape to Porthminster Beach, so if your fortunate to be staying at the ST Ives end
of Carbis Bay, then both are within walking distance along the coastal path (gallery).
Facilities include beach shop, beach cafe, deck chair and windbreak hire and beach
hut hire. Car parking is at front of The Carbis Bay Hotel.
Sheltered from all the elements within the harbour walls. Popular at low tide. (when
the harbour starts to fill up you’ll get you’re feet wet!!) Ideal beach for people
watching and families having fun. Soak up the views or have a walk across what must
be the cleanest harbour in Britain. Close to all town amenities. In fact step off
the beach and you’re in the town. Beach shops, deck chair hire and plenty of places
to grab a snack. The nearest toilets and car park can be found at the rear of The
