Lifting the lid on the St Ives dog ban

Katy Peck

We are now just days away from the St Ives dog ban being lifted for the season across St Ives most popular beaches, welcoming back all four-legged friend alike. Reclaiming the sand from the Spring and Summer crowds, the St Ives beaches will once again be a doggy haven…

Whether you are a new or returning visitor to St Ives, it comes as a welcome return for all of those that visit St Ives with man’s best friend once the ban is lifted. As no visit to this part of the county is complete without a charge along one of St Ives great expanses of golden sand for any dog.

With many of our returning guests choosing to come out of season for this very reason, we decided we would recap our favourite hot spots for time spent with Fido.

How does the St Ives dog ban effect you?

OK, granted no stay in St Ives with your dog in the Spring and Summer (even though it is sunnier) is the same for your four-legged friend as it is in the Autumn and Winter, as your four-legged friend can’t charge across the expanse of Porthmeor Beach. But, does this need to make St Ives a no go zone for dog lovers for 6 months of the year? We think not… find out more
