Perranporth Beach Loved By Surfers, Bodyboarders, Beach Lovers, Children and Dogs

The beach at Perranporth, Cornwall seems to go on forever. A bit of an exaggeration perhaps, but the golden sand stretches for at least three miles accompanied by clear water.

I'm always happy walking on a beach - though there was one time I wasn't - but that's another story for perhaps another time.

Perranporth is on Cornwall's north Atlantic coast and is popular with surfers, bodyboarders and the like. There can be some good surf and waves. 

The beach is also liked by dogs - as you will see by the photos.

The beach is dog friendly and they are allowed on the sand all the year round. There is one restriction though during July and August when dogs must be kept on a lead from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. And, of course, any dog mess must be cleared away by doggie humans.

The RNLI are on duty during the main busy times of the year. Their website gives dates and times when they are present on Perranporth beach.

As you wander along the sand there are sand dunes behind the beach.

Their are also cliffs and rocks depending on how far you walk.

The photo below shows the most popular part of the beach, especially in the summer months. Most people don't like to walk much further. There are tyre marks on the sand as the beach had just been cleaned.

If you keep walking around the bend or headland shown below you will find that ... 

… the beach continues and there are lots more sand dunes. 

From the lovely stretch of beach above I headed back to where I started ... the dogs were still having fun!
