Whichever beach you decide to take your dog to, be sure to stick to some basic doggy beach rules so that our furry friends will continue to be welcome at these beaches.


  • It is important that your dog is socialised and that they are friendly towards people and other dogs. If they have not been socialised, don’t bring them to a public beach.
  • Your dog should also be obedient to your basic commands.
  • Keep an eye on your dog at all times. You never know when your dog may get into trouble with another dog  - the situation may need your quick intervention.
  • Make sure  that your dog is not bothering other people - they may not be so keen on dogs.
  • Pick up after your dog - Bring your poop bag with and keep it handy and use it!
  • Signage has been put up at most beaches, detailing the rules of the beach and if dogs are allowed or not.
