Dog Friendly Beaches – Dog Walking in Newquay

Dog Friendly Beaches - Newquay Dog Walking - Doggy Day Care Cornwall

Beachside dog walks are one of our favourite ways to spend time with our four legged friends, but as many of you will know, this can be a little difficult during the summer months. Many beaches in Cornwall have a seasonal dog ban in place from Easter to October, preventing beachside dog walking during most of the day. Since many of our guests want to go dog walking in Newquay we thought we’d share all the best dog friendly spots.  All of these Newquay beaches are dog friendly all year round:

Fistral Beach, Newquay

A favourite Newquay dog walking spot amongst locals and one of the most popular beaches in Cornwall, Fistral Beach is an expansive golden sand beach that’s overlooked by the imposing Headland Hotel. The large car park and seasonal lifeguard cover make this a very convenient spot for a doggy paddle.

Crantock Beach, Newquay

Crantock Beach is refreshingly quiet due to it’s location- it’s just outside of Newquay so it avoids the hustle and bustle of the town. It’s a beautiful, golden beach that’s partly sheltered by cliffs and big enough to tire any doggy out.

Watergate Bay, Newquay

Watergate Bay is another gold sandy beach, just two miles from Newquay town. At low tide it’s vast expanse means finding a quiet spot, even in summer isn’t too difficult.

Mawgan Porth, Newquay

This sheltered family friendly, beach is just four miles form Newquay. It has easy access from a level car park so it’s ideal for those with some mobility issues, and because of it’s distance from the town, it remains relatively quiet throughout the year.

Bedruthan Steps, Newquay

More of a challenge to get to than the rest, Bedruthan Steps gets it’s name from the dark slate outcrops scattered on the beach. This is a lovely beach for dog walking in Newquay, but you do need to be careful of the cliffs and tides. It’s easy for even the most obedient dogs to become distracted by the sea so we’d recommend remaining on lead around the cliff tops and keeping an careful eye on the tide when walking along the beach.

Perranporth Beach, Newquay

Further down the coast your will find Perranporth Beach. During low tide Perranporth joins Penhale Sands to form one of the largest stretches of unbroken sand on the North Coast of Cornwall. This makes it a perfect spot to tire out energetic doggies but be warned, the beach can get very busy during the summer months.
