The West Country region
Hawkes Point is at the eastern end of the delightful Carbis Bay beach. At low tide you can reach Porth Kidney Sands, a quiet and evocative beach that is still part of Carbis Bay. Porthkidney Sands stretches as far as the Hayle Estuary and is backed by sand dunes and unspoilt by buildings. The views across the beach to Godrevy create panoramic images which have been the inspiration of many artists including the well-known artist John Miller. This is a walk not to be missed by any visitor to the area.
Sea Urchin Apartments at the end of Headland Road, occupy perhaps one of the most stunning locations in West Cornwall. On the South West Coastal Path from Carbis Bay to Lelant, Sea Urchin sits in an elevated position above Hawkes Point and Porth Kidney Sands. There is no passing traffic here - just walkers, artists and photographers all of whom are inspired by the panoramic views across St Ives Bay to Godrevy Lighthouse and beyond, which are bound to also inspire guests at Sea Urchin.
There are just 6 apartments in this unique development each having a space in the private car park which leads to the communal tropical gardens, a delightful area offering a further escape for guests, with a BBQ, picnic table and chairs to be enjoyed by all.
