More About Carbis Bay
The tiny village of Carbis Bay has a population of 3,000, one grocery store and a highly-rated fish and chip restaurant.

Facing northeast and just one mile east of St Ives it is an ideal spot for families as the sea here is perfect for swimming.

It has a station served by the picturesque St Ives branch line which is considered one of the most picturesque in the country.
