Carbis Bay came to the worlds attention in 2021 when the G7 summit was held there.
Just a mile out of St Ives, Carbis Bay is the perfect destination for a relaxing day at the beach. The bay’s wooded cliffsides and situation in St Ives Bay assure tranquil clear blue waters, making it the ideal spot for swimming.
The golden beach itself is perfect for soaking up the sun on warm summer days, or constructing elegant castles in the sand. While surfers might wish to look elsewhere for a swell, any with an interest in stand up paddle boarding or kayaking may just find that Carbis Bay ticks every box.
