Top things to do in Cornwall this Easter

For that special Easter getaway, Cornwall offers an exciting playground for adults and children alike. Here is a list of our top things to do this Easter break…

Easter at Carbis Bay Estate

Easter is a wonderful time to visit Carbis Bay, the evenings are getting lighter, gardens are springing back to life and the days are that little bit warmer - plus there's so much to do! Our C Bay Kids' Club will be available during the holidays with a wide range of Easter art & crafts activities to suit all age levels, including our annual Easter egg hunt which takes place around the estate.

Carbis Bay Beach

Nothing beats a day on the beach – and no British seaside has more to offer than our privately-owned, 25-acre Blue Flag and Seaside-Awarded Cornish beach.

Carbis Bay Beach

From graceful coastal birds and inquisitive seals to historic shipwrecks and cascading waterfalls; there's always so much to discover at Carbis Bay beach.

Ocean Sports at Carbis Bay Beach

If you crave a little more activity, visit our Ocean Sports Centre and enjoy a family day out on the water.

Stand up paddle boarder with yacht

If you haven't yet tried SUP, the usually calm waters of the bay are ideal for getting to grips with the basics of this popular sport. However, if you want to try something a bit different, hop onboard a four- or six-seater Hawaiian canoe for a guided coastal tour, during which you can spot marine life through underwater viewers, look out for dolphins and even surf a few small waves. All ages welcome.

Spring Spa

Transitioning our bodies from winter to spring sometimes needs a helping hand, making it the perfect time to indulge in a rejuvenating spa treatment.

Experience our Aromatherapy Associates signature Rose Facial - the perfect treat to awaken your senses after a harsh winter. Using the healing properties of damask rose oil to help condition and deeply nourish the skin, this treatment leaves skin feeling radiant and ready for the spring sunshine.

The Coast Path

One of the best ways to make the most spring in Cornwall is to get outdoors and explore, so lace up your walking boots and head outside because you'll find some of the best coastal walks in the country right on our doorstep.

Much of the sub-tropical foliage is year-round but it is the explosion of colour that marks the start of spring that is not to be missed.

Did you know that the South West Coast Path ranks alongside New Zealand’s Milford Track, Chile’s Torres del Paine trek and Alaska’s Chilkoot Trail as one of the world’s most awe-inspiring hikes, according to Lonely Planet?

National Trust Easter Egg Hunts

Embrace the great outdoors and treat the whole family to some Easter fun with the National Trust. Explore ancient woodland as you follow the trail and discover lots of fun activities along the way. Complete the trail and earn your chocolate egg at the end.

Several nearby National Trust properties are taking part, including Trelissick, Godolphin, Trengwainton Garden and Glendurgan, so be sure not to miss out on the fun.

St Michael's Mount

The majestic tidal island of St Michael’s Mount, off the coast of Marazion, has an exciting programme of events planned for the year ahead. From rock pooling to tours of the castle, this unique destination is buzzing with fun initiatives to be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.

Easter Breaks at Carbis Bay Estate
