Pendennis Point

This walk will not only please your dog, but scratch any itch you may have to learn more about Falmouth’s history. Soak up Falmouth’s maritime heritage as you pass the docks, look out across the vast harbour and see Pendennis Castle further down the path.

Dog Friendly Beaches

Falmouth’s two most popular beaches, Swanpool and Gyllyngvase, don’t allow dogs during the summer. Helford Passage allows dogs (with the nearby dog-friendly Ferryboat Inn a good pitstop), as does Carne, Porthluney, Porthcurnick and Gorran Haven.

Swanpool Beach to Maenporth Beach

This is a brilliant walk for the winter months, as from October to Easter, dogs are allowed to roam freely on both beaches, with the supervision of a responsible owner. The walk is 1.7 miles and is a fairly easy stroll for those with two legs and four!
