Porthlunley dog-friendly beach, Cornwall

Description

South facing bay on the Roseland Heritage coastline, somewhat dominated by an enormous car park.  Dogs allowed on the beach all year round.   

Details

Plenty of P&D parking right next to the beach.  WCs, cafe and small shop.  There's a 19th century castle, Caerhays, nearby - built by John Nash.

Walk

Three short walks are sign posted from the right corner of the open ground to the front of the café when standing with you back to the sea. These are as follows;  1. Coast Path East Portholland, one and a quarter mile. This affords excellent sea views although the path is both narrow and extremely steep in places.   2. Tregavarras, half a mile   3. Coast Path Hemmick, one and three-quarter miles.  Added by AceRose April 2021

Value for money beach parking

Easy parking plus value for money. 30 minutes free (but you still need to put your details in the machine). £1 for one hour, £2 for two hours if staying for breakfast. The café has a lovely eating platform overlooking the beach and sea, weather permitting. A fresh water stream runs into the sea near to the café and toilet block. It is best to go at low tide for maximum running area.

Toilets are primitive but perfectly serviceable.
