Beaches Guide

West Cornwall and in particular St Ives Bay has been blessed with crystal clear , turquoise waters and pale, soft, sandy beaches to match the best in the Mediterranean or the Carribean.

In recognition of this, St Ives Bay has been awarded the prestigious 'The Most Beautiful Bays in the World' award. Porthminster and Porthmeor beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag standard.

St Ives Bay

Porth Kidney Sands is a three minute walk down the hillside along the coast path from Beachtop Apartment. The apartment enjoys panoramic views over the beach which is a mile long. The pale sand slopes very gradually into the shallow crystal clear waters of the bay. Porth Kidney Sands beach is not as busy as Carbis Bay and St Ives beaches, therefore it is the ideal getaway for those looking to relax in peace, far from the maddening crowd.
Carbis Bay Beach is a fairly large beach with a long stretch of soft pale sand which slopes gradually into the calm waters. It has pay & display parking, public toilets, cafe, takeaway restaurant and a shop. It is ideal for families and young children. The beach is just a ten minute stroll from Beachtop Apartment.

A most enjoyable walk is to follow the Coast Path eastward along the top of the beach through the grassy dunes to the pretty village of Lelant nearby.
