Dogs are banned from 7am to 7pm but if you go up the road to Godrevy you can walk them any time on the far beach which looks across the bay to St. Ives. And it’s gorgeous!

Yes this is a sandcastle beach, there are some pebbles but few & far between, a few pebbles look good put on the side of sandcastles so that's a bonus.☺☺
