St Ives Harbour Beach – depending on how the tide falls, the beach can be a huge playground for dogs. You can walk from The Sloop Inn right around to the rocky Lambeth Walk area when the tide is fully out. Be careful of the moor lines, they can be a trip hazard! There are large bins along the harbour where you can deposit dog poo bags. Want to find out what the tides are doing?
