Carbis Bay

Carbis Bay

St Ives Bay Line

One of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall, Carbis Bay has very little parking so the best way to reach it is by train.

How to visit by train

The beach is a steep walk down from the station but there is usually plenty of space, soft white sands, turquoise waters and a café on site.

If you don’t fancy the steep climb, then you can always take the train all the way to St Ives and walk to Carbis Bay along the South West Coast Path. The walk should take about 25 minutes (get directions) but the views out over the coast are spectacular.

Coming by train

The line begins at St Erth Park & Ride on the Cornish main line.
