Is it legal to take my dog to the beach?

If you have a dog, you surely like to enjoy it everywhere. When taking him on vacation with you, the same question always arises : is it legal to take my dog ​​to the beach?

In this case, it is important to know the current legislation well since, if we make a mistake, we expose ourselves to fines of up to €3,000.

When can I take my dog ​​to the beach?

To clear up any doubts, it is best to contact the town hall of the town where we plan to go to ask about beach prohibitions.

This is because there really is no general law that prohibits dogs from entering beaches, but there are municipalities where their access is prohibited on certain beaches .

For example, in Murcia or Malaga, pets are completely prohibited from accessing the beach with some exceptions, such as a guide dog.

The best thing is to ask the town hall

In other cases, we find beaches that have a specific time for the entry of these animals, such as after 9 at night. On the other hand, there are beaches that do not have any type of limitations , so there is no problem going there with our dog at any time of the day.

In short, in the vast majority of cases the regulation of animals on the beach corresponds to each municipality and is usually different for each beach.

Precisely for this reason, it is important to know if you go to a place like Alicante which beaches you can access with your furry friend and which ones you cannot. Informing yourself about these requirements before booking your vacation will be key if you want to enjoy a day at the beach with your dog .

And have you had any problems taking your dog to the beach? If so, be sure to share your experience with us in the comments.
