Dog Friendly Beaches in Cornwall

Dog Friendly Beaches in Cornwall

If you are looking for a place to spend some quality time with your pet, there are some stunning dog friendly beaches in Cornwall. Surrounded on 3 sides by the sea, the coastline of Cornwall is only ever just a stones throw away. There is an almost endless choice of fantastic beaches where you can take your four legged friend for a stroll.

The only problem you will have is choosing where is your favourite spot is to stay as there are so many dog friendly cottages in Cornwall to choose from. Would you & your dog like to walk across the county’s vast sandy beaches? Maybe you prefer heading along the spectacular South West Coastal path? There is something to suit every type of stroller, whether they have two legs or four!

My favourite top 5 dog friendly beaches in Cornwall are :

Fistral Beach

The beach is a huge expanse of golden sand in the popular resort of Newquay and is split up into three distinct areas. South Fistral, the main beach & Little Fistral. Not only is the beach a great place to walk but the spectacular Pentire and Towan headlands to South and North are also well worth exploring.

Mawgan Porth Beach

Close to the town of Newquay, but also far enough away to avoid the peak season holiday crowds. The beach is sheltered by high cliffs to each side and particularly at low tide, there is lots of space.

Gorran Haven Beach

A golden sandy beach located right next to the ancient village of Gorran Haven. The beach has a small stone walled harbour giving the place a traditional Cornish feel to it.

Coverack Beach

Situated on the Lizard Peninsula lies the picture postcard fishing village of Coverack. This part of the Cornish coastline is relatively quiet all year round, so if you want to avoid crowds, this is the place for you.

Green Bay Beach

Located on the Scilly Isles, an archipelago just off the Cornish mainland. Green beach has vast expanse of white sand backed by trees and foliage to the rear, giving it an almost Caribbean like feel in the summer months.
