Carbis Bay

Carbis Bay is a Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide Recommendation (2014) and has excellent water quality.


One of Cornwall's award-winning Blue Flag beaches, Carbis offers safe bathing coupled with a subtropical feel. The fabulous turquoise sea and white sands are loved by all and this is a popular family holiday destination.


The east side of the beach merges with Porth Kidney sands at low tide, which is also an RSPB bird sanctuary.



Carbis Bay is easily accessed from the A3074 (St Ives Road).
