Dog friendly beaches in Cornwall

With an abundance of dog friendly beaches in Cornwall, you certainly won’t be stuck for choice when deciding where to take your pooch this forthcoming holiday.

Fistral Beach is dog friendly all year round and is the perfect stretch of sand for those early morning strolls with your furry friend.

The tidal banks of the river Gannel are also popular all year round. Offering golden sands and long rewarding walks, it’s a haven for dog owners and their canine friends.

Set at the heart of Newquay, the sands of Towan Beach are another year round dog friendly option. Sheltered with the harbour on one side and ‘the island’ rock on the other, the beach is a popular choice for dogs looking to paddle in the Atlantic Ocean, away from the gentle winds.

Holywell Bay is a perfect example of the north coast’s wide open bays. Backed by grass turfed dunes, it’s a large expanse of golden sand, great for playing fetch with the dog.

Another popular Newquay town beach, Great Western, is a soft sandy beach overlooked by towering cliffs. Dogs can stretch their legs on the wide beach at low tide and paddle in the Atlantic at high tide.
