Trebarwith Strand Beach is dog friendly all year, so your loveable canine companions needn’t miss out on its famous views, caves, and golden sands. Nearby Bossiney Cove, just outside Tintagel and towards Boscastle, is a stunning sandy beach that joins up with neighbouring Benoath Cove at low tide. It’s something of an overlooked gem too, and perfect for adventurous pooches and their owners.
Walk along the coastal path from Trebarwith Strand to Port Isaac, the picture-postcard fishing village famous for being the setting for ITV’s Doc Martin TV series. This trek involves a lot of steep ups and downs, but you’ll be rewarded with glorious views over Cornwall’s dramatic and ever-changing north coast.
Head a 20-minute drive west from Trebarwith Strand to Pentire Point, near Polzeath, where you’ll find The Rumps. This twin headland is home to one of Cornwall’s most iconic views. Pentire Point frames the rugged rock formation perfectly, and it’s known for looking like a restful dragon. This curious landmark also features the remnants of an Iron Age fort at Rumps Point.
