Dorset Dog-Friendly Beaches

Where can I find UK dog-friendly beaches? The UK coastline has miles and miles of beaches, but finding a nearby beach that allows dogs during the summer can be hard. Many beaches welcome dogs between the 1st of October and Easter/May but restrict them during the peak summer.

Our information for every beach gives details about tides, weather, and where we have the details, we also provide information about dog restrictions. Notice boards on beaches with dog restrictions provide full details of bans and/or restricted areas.
