  • Cornwall holiday park with beach access five minutes’ drive from Hayle
  • A 25-minute drive to Flambards Theme Park, Tate St Ives 20 minutes
  • Bar, bistro and shop on site, plus a play park and heated indoor pool
Private access to a three-mile sandy beach sound tempting? That's the fabulous feature you’ll get at St Ives Bay Holiday Park, set on sand dunes five minutes’ drive from Hayle in Cornwall. If you’re all piling in for a family holiday, you can spend days building sandcastles, running around on the beach with the kids and cooling off in the sea. Travelling as a couple? You’ll have spectacular sea views across St Ives Bay and you’re almost guaranteed colourful sunsets as a backdrop for romantic twilight strolls on the sand. And when kicking back and enjoying the views is not quite enough for you (and, let’s face it, the kids will want more), how about crazy golf, tennis or the amusement arcades? You can burn off more energy at the surf school or in the heated indoor swimming pool, and there are play areas scattered around the park to wear the kids out properly. With all this going on, make sure you leave time to unwind for a drink at the terrace bar with superb views over the bay and a menu of small, tapas-style snacks – there’s entertainment in the evenings too. Or you may like to make a night of it with the family over a freshly prepared meal at Sands Bistro? Forgotten an important ingredient or need milk for your morning cuppa? There’s a well-stocked independent shop on site that stocks all the essentials, including your daily newspaper.

Liked: Cracking beach in a fab location, facilities were spot on.

Disliked: Only reason I didn't give a 5 was because the club house was quite and didn't seem to be a lot happening, saying that I would definitely recommend and will be going again.

Liked: Lovely location within 5 minutes walk of the amazing beach. Plenty of space on the pitches. Toilets were clean and pleasant. Good choice in the shop. Great for staying with kids or dogs.

Disliked: Nothing really although I would choose to stay mid week or out of season as I can imagine it would be busy.

Liked: I was very unsure about this site due to past reviews about the bathrooms. BUT we absolutely LOVED it. The bathrooms were spotless, they were cleaned at 3 times a day I even stood and congratulated a cleaner on such a wonderful job, he said past reviews had led people to expect poor cleanliness...but honestly the communal camping areas were spotless. We had free use of the indoor pool on site. Great access to the beach. Large camping area. Good on site shop for anything you've forgotten and little gifts and 2 fantastic club houses both reasonable priced. And free WIFI in the club houses. I would definitely recommend and book again.

Disliked: Nothing...the place was AMAZING 👏 😍

Liked: Lovely helpful staff. Wonderful views and really enjoyed watching the horses in the dunes and all the rabbits. Great indoor heated pool and really nice food in the restaurant.

Disliked: Hand dryers in the loo/shower blocks blow freezing cold air and washing up taps are far too fierce and you get a good shower at the same time! Wouldn’t stop us going again though. Rabbit droppings everywhere but loved watching them all.

Had a great time. Will definitely be back

Local attractions

When you can prise the kids away from the beach, chances are they may demand to be taken to Flambards Theme Park (25 minutes’ drive) to explore the Victorian Village and experience Britain in the Blitz, run riot on the thrill rides and dig for fossils at Dino Dig. For a sneaky lesson in Cornish history, spend time on the immersive Dark Walk at Bodmin Jail Attraction (50 minutes) and take a look around the dank prison cells, or travel back to Tudor times with Elizabethan-themed workshops at National Trust-owned Trerice (40 minutes). Come right back up to date with a tour of the masterpiece works of contemporary art at Tate St Ives (20 minutes). If it’s animal-related activities you’re after, meet rescue owls at the Screech Owl Sanctuary (40 minutes), or feed the seals at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary (half an hour). Take an underground safari to see sharks and colourful shoals of tropical fish at Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay (40 minutes), and see big cats in spacious enclosures at Newquay Zoo (35 minutes).
