Dog-friendly beaches in Cornwall: where your pets are welcome all year round

For many dog owners and dog walkers, there is nothing better than spending some time on the beach with their best friends. Unfortunately for those who live in Cornwall, there will be restrictions coming into play for dog walkers on many beaches. However, there are still plenty of beaches to choose from where your pet will be allowed. In Cornwall, there are a total of 76 beaches where you can take your dogs at any time of the year. You should remember that some will still ask that the dog be on a leash all the time.
