Magical family memories can be made at the Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate. With a total 125 acres to enjoy – and a fifth of that given over to our huge beach – this is the perfect playground for little ones.

Most popular among junior visitors tends to be our private, 25-acre Blue Flag beach, whose golden sands support game-playing and endless running. The sea is almost always calm and gentle, too, so bathing is safe.

There’s also a heated outdoor pool and plenty of gardens to play in, while The Conservatory has kids’ menus and readily-available ice cream. There are film nights and regular, hosted activities. And, if more leg-stretching is needed, the South West Coast Path runs through our estate and it’s an easy, scenic 25 minute stroll to St Ives’ galleries, shops, museums and harbour.

Have a family Day on the Water

Take to the water for a day of family fun. Our top of the range Sunseeker Manhattan 50 will surpass everyone’s expectations from the moment you step on board. With a sports flybridge, alfresco living and dining areas, large sun-deck, swim platform and its own tender, you will feel part of an exclusive club as you enjoy the day.
