The current outcome applies to all beaches in Cornwall except those with Blue Flag Status:

  • Harmonised restrictions from 1 July to 31 August (two months) between 10:00 to 18:00 hours daily
  • Except where a beach has Blue Flag status in place, when restrictions will apply for longer, from 15 May to 30 September (four and a half months) between 10:00 to 18:00.
  • Porthmeor Beach is re-applying for Blue Flag status which will be announced in May 2020.
