  • 1. Your up-to-date vaccination record in the event of any unwanted unforeseen event.

  • 2. A container or drinker and plenty of fresh water.

More dog beaches in Spain

Every year, new beaches and coves are added to the list of those that allow dog access throughout Spain.

The Valencian Community and Andalusia are the regions with the most beaches for dogs. Municipalities such as Torrevieja, Alboraya and Torrox already have
pet friendly beaches for this summer 2022.

A few years ago, the
Law of Coasts was modified to include the prohibition of dogs on the beaches in the summer season. Since then, there have been many municipalities that have been encouraged to set up beaches for the enjoyment of swimmers and their dogs.
