|Sea Shells at The Sands Apartments, Carbis Bay, is a five star gold luxury ground floor self catering apartment providing premium self catering holiday accommodation and is the ideal base for exploring the many attractions that West Cornwall has to offer. |
With an abundance of art galleries, fine restaurants and a choice of golden sandy beaches, sparkling seas and its picturesque working harbour (often home to families of seals) itís no wonder St Ives is one of the UKís favourite seaside holiday destinations. Its unique quality of light provides inspiration to artists, poets and writers all year round. Carbis Bay, just a mile and a half away from St Ives, is the perfect base for a memorable holiday.
Enjoy the tranquil setting of Carbis Bay and its beautiful beach, stroll along the magnificent South West coastal path, taking in the dramatic views of St Ives Bay, and be in St Ives in around 20 minutes or so, or hop on the St Ives Bay branch line (almost certainly the most scenic railway in the UK) and be in St Ives in just two minutes (of course you can take your car, but St Ives is almost impossible to drive through and park in the summer!). Warmed by the Gulf Stream this part of Cornwall enjoys its own micro climate and has a real Mediterranean feel about it. The subtropical plants make Carbis Bay a pleasure to visit all year round.
