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.

- 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.
