The time of year when doggy restrictions come into play is from Easter to October, when only a limited number of beaches continue to allow dogs between 8am and 7pm. This can be disappointing for many dog owners but fear not, there are still a number of beautiful beaches available to everyone. We’ve compiled the top 5 dog friendly beaches for Cornwall, so that wherever your holiday takes you, your four-legged friend can come too.

Coverack Beach, The Lizard

A small sand and pebble beach next to the picture-perfect Coverack, this beach is dog-friendly all year-round.

Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes

Recommended by the Good Beach Guide, this beautiful sandy stretch is the main beach for St Agnes, and is accessible via a slight incline running down to the beach.

Mawgan Porth Beach, Newquay

An open, golden-sands beach surrounded by lush green country, Mawgan Porth beach offers the perfect day out for all the family.

Pendower Beach, The Roseland

Pendower is a stunning sandy beach owned by the National Trust. Two-legged and four-legged friends are always welcome.

Summerleaze Beach, Bude

Just a five minute walk from the centre of Bude, Summerleaze is a wonderful day out and invites dogs all year-round.
