Carbis Bay Beach (Cornwall)

Carbis Bay is a sandy beach about a mile east of St Ives and a resort in its own right.

Very safe bathing due to sheltered aspect and calm sea. Also ideal for windsurfing and water-skiing.

All facilities close to the beach, although a small car park and lifeguards during the summer.

Carbis Bay Beach is a Blue Flag Beach and has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

We have no current information on dog restrictions for Carbis Bay Beach.

Water samples are taken at regular intervals during the bathing season and at the end of the season the water quality is classified as:
  • Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
  • Good: generally good water quality
  • Sufficient: meets minimum standards
  • Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
