Gwithian Beach and St Ives Bay

It doesn’t take long to work out why Cornwall is famous for it’s coves and beaches. Just a short walk from Gwithian Holidays is the three mile stretch of sand that makes up St Ives Bay.

Many of the nearby beaches are dog friendly and regardless, you can take a dog on the dunes that surround Gwithian village and lead onto the beach at any time of the day and year.

Dog Friendly Beaches in Gwithian & St Ives Bay

The Godrevy section of the beach is dog friendly from 7pm to 8am during the summer months from May 1st to September 30th (shaded red). There is a small area at Gwithian where dogs are allowed on a lead (shaded yellow) to access the remaining 2 1/4 miles of year-round doggy heaven (shaded green). This runs from Gwithian all the way southwest until you get to Hayle.

Just west of the where the river Hayle meets the sea is Porthkidney Sands, another quiet dog friendly beach that connects up with Carbis Bay on a very low tide.

There are several other dog friendly beaches as well as beaches with a seasonal dog ban that are within easy striking distance of Gwithian village. There are too many to list here but for a comprehensive list head to Visit Cornwall.

Incidentally Gwithian has just been rated as the best of 50 beaches for a family to visit in the UK by The Sun┬ánewspaper – another great reason to pay us a visit.
