Dogs & our beaches

Information about where and when dogs are permitted on beaches

Where and when you can take your dog onto the beach: We’d love dogs to be able to enjoy our beaches and foreshores all year round. However, to ensure everyone is able to enjoy our coastline, there are some places where, between 1 May and 30 September, dogs can’t go or will have to be kept on a lead.

By clicking on the icons in the map below you will be able to see which restrictions are in place on each of our district’s beaches.

A more detailed map, including where restrictions start and finish, can be found here.
