Dogs are part of the family and should be able to accompany you on holiday if you wish. There are lots of dog-friendly accommodation options in St Ives; hotels, B&Bs, rental cottages and apartments or campsites. Once here, there are many dog-walking areas to explore inland and along the coast. New dog bans will be in force on many beaches between 10am and 6pm from July 1 until August 31, these include Porthminster, Porthgwidden and the Harbour Beach. On St Ives Blue Flag beaches, Porthmeor and Carbis Bay the restrictions span a little longer, from 15 May to 30 September  between 10am and 6pm. 

Bamaluz is a small tidal beach located between the Harbour and Porthgwidden, which allows dog access all year round, as well as Lambeth Walk just behind the lifeboat station. For the ultimate walk for owner and dog, head out of town along the coastal path and have the view virtually to yourself. There are many quiet inland woods and rivers that you can enjoy with your four-legged friend.

The oddly named Lambeth Walk beach is easily overlooked, despite being almost in the town centre of St Ives.

This small rocky and sandy cove is one of the few beaches in St Ives that allows dogs all year around.
