Special note: When you go to a beach and if the prohibition of the permanence of dogs in the sand is indicated, the fine can reach 2500€. But there are exceptions, assistance dogs can frequent any beach without restriction. Assistance dogs are considered to be guide dogs assisting people with visual impairments, dogs trained to assist people with hearing impairments and service dogs assisting people with mental or motor impairments.

Although Pet Friendly beaches do not forget that there are rules to be followed before putting your paws on the beach, essentially rules of civility that should be taken into account so that the stay of dogs on the beach does not turn the leisure time of other bathers into a living hell.

  • The use of a collar or harness and leash is required
  • The collection of waste is obligatory
  • Always carry your Pet Identification Card or Pet Passport with you
  • No injured, sick or in heat animals are allowed.
  • In the case of dogs of potentially dangerous breeds, the use of a muzzle is compulsory, as well as a short leash attached to a collar or harness.
