Holywell Bay

St Ives Bay Holiday Park > Attractions > Holywell Bay

First impressions of Holywell Bay can be deceptive as the main beach is obscured by sand dunes as you approach. It is only upon scaling or walking around these dunes that the expanse of golden sand stretching almost a mile to the north-east becomes apparent.
Being located close enough, but not too close to Newquay is a big factor in Holywell’s popularity. Whilst it does get busy in the summer, it has a family friendly feel about it and an unspoilt rural backdrop. With seasonal lifeguards on hand, sand dunes to explore, rockpools and a small stream meandering down the beach Holywell Bay is great for kids. There are plenty of facilities close to the beach in the small village including ample car-parking. For golf enthusiasts there is an 18 hole golf course overlooking the beach.
The name Holywell is derived from holy well and it is believed this refers to a cave at the northern end of the beach. Only accessible at low tide (so take care) the cave contains an unusual rock formation which creates a series of basins.
One of Holywell Bay’s most distinctive features are the twin rocks just of the coast. These two huge rocks are known as Gull Rocks or Carter’s Rocks.
