Falmouth’s main beaches operate seasonal dog bans, but there are some equally beautiful options for pooches to be found elsewhere. Among the finest is Polgwidden Cove, a small sandy beach that lies at the base of Trebah Garden. A walk through the garden’s subtropical paradise is a local highlight too. You’ll find plenty of dog-friendly beaches on the other side of the Carrick Roads, within the Roseland Peninsula – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Highlights include Towan Beach and Portscatho Beach.
Hop aboard a ferry from the Falmouth Prince of Wales Pier and have a stroll around Flushing. From here, you can trek the shoreline around Trefussis Point to Mylor Harbour, passing some small and tranquil coves along the way. Kiln Quay, also known as Trefusus Beach and Flushing Beach, is dog friendly all year round. We’re not far from the National Trust’s Trelissick Estate, which offers miles of woodland walks, open countryside, and a peaceful shoreline for dogs and their owners to explore.
