"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Carbis Bay Beach

Carbis Bay is a beautiful beach of approximately 1 mile length. The centre of the beach is home to all the facilities, car park and the Carbis Bay Hotel which has extensive grounds leading down to the edge of the beach. Being north by northeast facing, the beach rarely gets surf and is a family friendly beach. Away from the central facilities, the beach meanders away to rocky edges. The east side of the beach, at low tide, can dry out to connect with the RSPB bird sanctuary beach of Porthkidney Sands which adds another mile and a half to anybody wishing to take a stroll. Tidal considerations are important but the coastal footpath runs along the back of the beach so being cut of by the tide is unlikely. Special care needs to be taken near Carrick Gladden (Hawks Point) as this is the only area that could suffer from tidal influence.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. 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.

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.
