Carbis Bay Beach Beach

Carbis Bay, Cornwall

A one mile crescent of golden sand backed by an expanse of sand dunes. Privately owned by the Carbis Bay Hotel which backs onto the beach. An ideal retreat for those who dislike resort beaches. Watersports are restricted and the beach is family orientated.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (St. Ives) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
