Dog Friendly Beaches - these beaches are dog friendly all year

Many Cornish Beaches have seasonal restrictions banning dogs, usually from Easter Day or March until 1st October, with signs like the one below at the entrance to the beach. Some ban during the day but allow dogs in the early morning (before 7 or 8 depending) and late evening (usually after 7) - the sign will specify. And most beaches are dog friendly out of season. 

However, the beaches below allow dogs at any time (to the best of our knowledge)
