Things to do in Cornwall - surfing

Whilst winter brings with it huge swells from the North Atlantic, spring offers smaller but still great waves, as well as much better weather. All without the huge crowds that come with the start of the summer. Beaches such as Fistral, Gwithian, Perranporth, Porthtowan (to name only a few), all offer fantastic surf at this time of year.


Enjoy the beach with your dog before the ban

Dog friendly beaches in Cornwall

From Easter onwards, some of Cornwall’s beaches enforce a seasonal dog ban, making them out of bounds for your four-legged friend during the summer months. This makes spring the perfect time to enjoy the warmer weather on your favourite stretch of sand. Whether playing fetch, taking a long walk or enjoying the water, your dog is sure to enjoy the beach as much as you do.
