Dog Friendly Beaches in Wales and Beaches with Dog Restrictions and Bans!

Dog Friendly Beaches in Wales and Beaches with Dog Restrictions and Bans!

In Wales a beach ban is put in place at a lot of the beaches and other coastal areas from May 1 until September 30. This means that no dogs are allowed onto the beaches with the exception of guide dogs for the blind.

A fine of up to £500 can be issued if you breach these bans,  so it could be costly to you!

Below is a list of beaches in Wales that are dog friendly,  have dog restrictions, or where dogs are banned all year round.
