As we move into the fall and summer, not only will the temperature drop, but the number of Cornish beaches with dog restrictions as well.
Our four-legged friends will have even more options for exercising on the coast with several restrictions ending today (September 30).
Cornwall Council has a number of Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in place that limit when dogs can be taken to certain beaches.
While most of these restrictions apply from July 1 to August 31, some apply from May 15 to September 30.
The restrictions only prevent dogs from being taken to affected beaches from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. But as of today, those limits end until next year.
Here are the beaches where the restrictions end today:
Carbis bay beach
Crooklets Beach, Bude
Gyllyngvase Beach, Falmouth
Porthmeor Beach, St Ives
Porthminster Beach, St Ives
Trevone Beach, Padstow
Widemouth Beach, Bude
All other PSPO covered beaches set by the council are also now fully open to dogs after restrictions end on August 31. Restrictions will resume on May 15, 2022.
