Dog Restrictions on Pembrokeshire Beaches

Plan the perfect dog friendly holiday in Wales with our handy guide about summer dog restrictions

Dog in the sea at Pembrokeshire

If you’re a dog owner who is familiar with Pembrokeshire, you will most likely already be aware that a selection of Pembrokeshire beaches impose dog restrictions during the summer season. This is a custom which runs from the 1st May until the 30th September. 

That being said, there's no need to fear. With over 100 beaches in Pembrokeshire, it's only a very small number of beaches where you have to be aware of these restrictions plus a few of these beaches only put partial bans in place meaning that part of the beach remains dog friendly all year round. 

Dogs all over the land rejoice on 1st October when our furry four-legged friends are once again allowed to roam free on all Pembrokeshire beaches!

Although most beaches are dog-friendly all year round, it can sometimes be tiresome finding a dog-friendly beach with all the facilities you want on hand. But fear not, our Concierge team is always on hand if you need an extra helpful point in the right direction. Just give us a call with all your requirements, and we'll recommend the most suitable beaches to visit.

Which Beaches have Dog Restrictions?

There are only two beaches with complete dog bans which you have to be aware of. These are Tenby North Beach (location of the Long Course Weekend and Ironman Wales swims) and Whitesands Beach, near St Davids

Those with partial restrictions are:

At each of these beaches, there should be clear notice boards outlining which areas are dog friendly, which areas impose a complete ban and which areas require dogs to be kept on leads. If you were hoping to visit any of these beaches during your summer holiday in Pembrokeshire, you might want to take a look at the detailed maps available from Pembrokeshire County Council

To give you an added helping hand, we’ve gone the extra mile and have given each of our dog-friendly properties a specific Paw Rating which can be seen on our Woof Guide website. This uses a 1-5 scale to rate how suitable each property is for different types of dogs. Whether your pal is a young puppy with lots of energy or an elderly dog who enjoys life at a slower pace, we’ve got the perfect property for you.
