Searching for dog-friendly beaches? You can take your dog to many beaches in the UK, but you will need to check the specific local rules and regulations of the beach you plan to visit. On MyPAWfectPlace, we specify any known seasonal dog restrictions or information on prohibited areas. These regulations can change frequently, and it is always a good idea to check the beach’s rules which should be on an information board at entrance points.

It is also important to remember not everyone may be comfortable with dogs, and it is recommended on busy beaches to keep your dog on a lead and to always clean up after your dog while at the beach. This will help to ensure that the beach remains accessible, clean and safe for everyone to enjoy.
