We continue our journey this month in search of Cornwall’s coolest days outs. You’re bored of your local town, believe you’ve seen all Cornwall has to offer and are more eager than ever to find somewhere new to visit this summer. So discover these hidden spots you’ve probably driven through a hundred times and fall in love with Cornwall all over again.

Following last month’s visit to Boscastle and Tintagel, we venture to the opposite end of Cornwall at Carbis Bay; a haven of white sand and azure water.

Indulge in ultimate relaxation at Carbis Bay. With a beach, hotel, spa, beach club and water sport centre, a visit here is like a luxury holiday on your doorstep. The long stretching sandy beach and sensational sea views don’t disappoint either and provide visitors with every reason to return.

Dependant on our famously unpredictable weather, we suggest starting your day with a visit to the beach. If it’s warm enough, take a dip in the stunning azure waters, rent a kayak or a sail boat and get a taste of the ocean. Alternatively go for a swim in Carbis Bay Hotel’s pool and spend the afternoon on a poolside lounger with a book. Either way you’re sure to find something to keep everyone entertained.

Afterwards dry yourself off and head to the beach club for lunch. From steamed local mussels to beer battered halloumi, they offer a heavenly menu, using only fresh, local produce. Then stop at the spa for an opportunity to truly unwind. Get yourself a facial or spoil yourself with the Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience in their beach side treatment room, with its own private balcony overlooking the breathtaking bay.

If you fancy extending your visit to Carbis Bay, the award winning, family run hotel guarantees to provide you with a tranquil paradise to escape to. For offers and more information about the hotel visit their website: www.carbisbayhotel.co.uk
