Dog Friendly Beaches
All of Pembrokeshire's beaches, over 50, welcome dogs. You can choose from wide expanses of golden sand such as Marloes or secluded bays such as Broad Haven south.
During the height of summer, 1st May to the end of September, some of the more popular bathing beaches have dog restricted areas (This includes Poppit, Newgale, Broad Haven, Dale, Lydstep, Tenby South, Saundersfoot and Amroth). On two beaches, Whitesands and Tenby North to include harbour beach, the restriction covers the whole of the beach. The beach at Coppett Hall has a voluntary dog restriction.
Guide dogs are welcome on Pembrokeshire's beaches all year round.
There are notice boards on all of the dog restricted beaches above, with full details of the byelaws and maps of the restricted areas. During the summer months there are signs out on the beach, which help you identify the start and end of a dog restriction area or you can ask one of the RNLI lifeguards patrolling the beaches. They'll point you in the right direction.
This still allows you access to miles and miles of beach on which to walk your dog, with spring and autumn being ideal times to come on holiday, when the beaches are less crowded. Pembrokeshire welcomes your best friend, but please be considerate to other beach users and remember you must always clean up after your dog.
See the downloads page for helpful dog restriction maps for the beaches.
