About Carbis Bay


Carbis Bay has gained extensive popularity as a holiday resort, its ideal location famous for the unusual light associated with St Ives Bay, which reaches out to Godevry Lighthouse. The nearby fishing town of St Ives boasts a number of popular sandy surfing beaches. The property market throughout Carbis Bay offers a range of different styles, including guest houses and hotels, with cottages remaining a popular choice as holiday let properties. Many of these houses have been modified for more modern living, but still provide an idealistic classical holiday cottage atmosphere. On clear days, you can see the Isles of Scilly from Carbis Bay.
