Carbis Bay is magical, to experience it you have to have discovered it. At any time of the year the colours of the sea and sky change as times passes. From the sun rising over Godrevy and Hayle to the sunsets over St Ives, you will begin to understand why this part of Cornwall has so much appeal to artists and sculptors. They too, have visited the area, some have not returned. As the quiet neighbour to St Ives, you can usually enjoy the space, peace and quiet whether sitting on the beach or strolling the South West Coast Path. For safe family bathing with lifeguard cover in the summer, the beach is the place for those endless days relaxing or building sand castles.
