Carlyon Bay is a popular beach consisting of almost two miles of coarse sand. Located just outside St Austell the bay here has had a number of proposed developments over the years, most of which have not amounted to anything.
There is car parking nearby and steps down to the beach.

Carlyon Bay Reviews
Lovely massive beach and the sea is usually very still as it’s a man-made beach and not got a natural tide. There’s a bar with inside seating and a fire pit for cold weather, that does DJ and bands some times and 2 food trucks on the beach too. There’s also a beach shop and a water sports centre! What more could you want on holiday on the beach!!
