It’s back to the beach time! Here are the beaches where the ban is lifted for winter…

As the summer draws to a close, dog owners from across Cornwall are celebrating one thing: a return to our favourite beaches.
Here are some of our top beaches to visit now the seasonal dog ban has been lifted:


  1. Poldhu Beach, Mullion – Head along to the fantastically dog friendly Poldhu Beach Cafe and grab one of their famous hot chocolates to enjoy while your dog stretches their legs
  2. Marazion to Longrock– Now you can finish off your trip to St Michaels Mount with an evening stroll across the beach at Marazion and enjoy a snack in the beach bar at The Godolphin Arms
  3. Gyllingvase – The Falmouth beaches are open again, including beautiful Gyllingvase — the perfect place for you and your dog to work up an appetite before visiting The Gyllycafe for a hot chocolate and home made cake.
