The Hayle River meets the sea at Porthkidney Sands. On a sunny day the white sand and the sea combine to give the area a tropical look.

Porthkidney beach is ideal for dogs as you can take them there at any time of the year. The huge beach opens up as you walk along the Hayle estuary. As you round the corner, you can see the beach stretches away towards Carbis Bay and St Ives.

At very high tides you can still access Porthkidney Beach by walking down through the golf course, passing between the beautiful graveyards of St Uny Lelant church until you reach the area near the railway bridge. Walk under the bridge and take the left turn onto the coast path. You can then access the beach via the dunes.

Please note, it is required that dogs stay on their leads on the path through the golf course. Signs indicate where the restrictions apply.

Once you're on the beach then dogs can come off their leads, run, swim, dig holes, socialise and all the other canine pursuits!

You'll find Porthkidney Beach at Lelant between Hayle and St Ives.
