The village is home to just 2,000 people, with the main hotel being the 125-year-old Carbis Bay Hotel.

While there are more options down the road at the famous St Ives town, most of the leaders will be staying in Carbis Bay itself.

The hotel has 38 rooms and suites in the building itself, as well as beach houses and valley cottages open to guests.

On-site is their award-winning spa which has a champagne bar, saunas, hot tubs and a heated outdoor pool overlooking the sea.

While included in the hotel stay, non-guests can visit for the day, for £50pp.

Guests can make the most of a number of experiences including a day trip on a motor yacht or even getting married at the beach.

Fancy a bite to eat? The hotel has restaurants including Restaurant 1894, Ugly Butterfly as well as the Beach Club Restaurant or afternoon tea in the main house.

Outside of the hotel, tourists in the area can head to Cornwall’s Restaurant of the Year in 2019, Una Kitchen.

Leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US are meeting in Cornwall for the annual G7 summit this Friday and are expected to discuss Covid vaccines donations to developing countries and a 15 per cent global tax rate.

The small seaside village is already seeing huge disruption as leaders including US President Joe Biden arrive.

US Secret Service agents stormed Carbis Bay today ahead of his arrival, although security is being forced to stay in hired camper vans because there is not enough accommodation in the area.

What is the G7 Summit?

Also known as the Group of Seven, these countries are seven of the largest economies of the world.

Together, they represent more than 62 per cent of the global net wealth ($280trillion).

The group was founded in the early 1970s as the seven countries discussed concerns about the collapse of the oil industry.

Since then, 43 summits have been held across the globe as members discuss everything from the environment to the economy.

The group was previously known as the G8 and counted Russia among its members, but Russia has been excluded since annexing the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine in early 2014.

More than 6,500 police from forces across the UK are set to be deployed during the summit.

Here are some of the other things you can do if you book a holiday to Carbis Bay.

Or, head across to St Ives which was voted the best place to live in Britain.
