Sands Bar

St Ives Bay Holiday Park > Entertainment > Sands Bar

The Sands Bar adjoins the conservatory at the seaward end of the park, and has great sea views and often magical sunsets from the deck. The bar generally opens at 7pm though alcohol is available from the Bay Bistro when the bar is closed. The Sands Bar is an adult only bar. Children are welcome in the Conservatory and the family area adjoining. There are several pool tables in the family areas. We serve local ales by St Austell Brewery and Skinners. Try a skin dog or a Betty Stoggs for a change!

This was my first holiday as a child around 7 years old and I’m now 35 and still holidaying here, this year I’ll be taking my own daughter. It’s such a great site for couple and families. The beach is stunning and we love having a drink in the bar watching the sunset. It’s so affordable and the chalets are great value…sitting outside with a BBQ in the evening drinking Lidl wine, it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. This is somewhere that I’ll always return to, I just love it!

Stayed here for May half term with my husband and two daughters (aged 10 & 8). We had an A6 chalet as that was the only accommodation left available when we tried to book and we are so glad we got this!
The chalet was huge!
My girls had a room each bigger than they have at home and we had a good sized double room.
The lounge was spacious with a comfortable corner sofa, TV with free view and a dining table. There were large patio doors leading out on to grassy area just shared with the chalet next door.
The kitchen was a good size also, with a modern cooker and microwave and oceans of cupboard space! Only suggestion is that it would have been useful to have had a toaster.
The site itself is just perfect for a laid back, peaceful retreat. There are numerous play parks spread around the parks for the children, as well as a tennis court and pitch and putt.
This is also the perfect base for those who like cycling. My husband is a keen mountain biker and spent many hours exploring the coastal paths and sand dunes – only occasionally finding himself a bit off course and on the beach!! Although we took our own bikes there are many places locally that hire bikes at a low cost.
One of the best aspects of this site is that they are not money grabbing as you see with some of the chains I.e haven, park resorts. There are no ‘camp characters’ that they have soft toys/merchandise of that they constantly advertise and market to the children – limiting the amount of pestering to buy things!
There are two little arcades which just have low cost machines for the children and even have little tuck shop so they can get some cheap goodies for 10, 20 or 30p with their pocket money – much cheaper than the shop! The two main bars are only open in the evening, although the Bay Bistro which serves food from morning til night has a limited amount of wines, cans and bottles if you fancy an afternoon tipple!
The pathways to get to the beach are a little challenging but it is so worth it, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, including abroad, definitely worth the walk. I have mobility issues but just about managed to get up and down- the path by the Bay Bistro was easiest for me. I think my will to see the beach was too strong to let my disability get in the way!
I have to say though, our favourite part of the whole holiday was being able to sit outside the Sands Bar/Bay Bistro in the evenings watching the sun set over the ocean, with a view stretching from St Ives one end to Godrevy Lighthouse the other, the colours in the sky providing a different backdrop every night – just magical.
Altogether an unforgettable experience and we can’t wait to go back again!
