As a regular visitor to St Ives I have been left totally bemused by the 6 month dog ban on this and other beaches that has been implemented 24 hours a day. Sure I can see the sense of asking owners to keep their dogs off the beach during the day in the busy holiday period. To be honest most responsible owners would do this anyway out of respect to their dog as it can get really packed. But to have a ban on walking the beach with your dog in the evening or early mornings seems completely bonkers. Visitors come to St Ives to visit the beaches! And to be told they can't go on four of the main tourist beaches for six months of the year seems a nonsense! Especially during the inclement weather... often the only people on the beach and therefore spending their money at the cafes during bad weather are the hardy dog-owning folk and their pets...Some say its because of safety to children....well this dog owner has three children and a dog....are you seriously suggesting that because my dog lives in close proximity to children they are in danger of disease etc every day of their lives? Come on St Ives lets get this into perspective and some more realistic none-dog time before visitors go elsewhere!
