Dog-friendly beaches in Spain

24 March 2017 0 Comments Category: blog, Living in Spain

Have you ever wondered why dogs are not allowed on the beach? Here’s a list of beaches where you can take your dog and nobody will complain about it!

Here’s what a map of Spain looks like:


But our top 5 beaches are:


  • Playa de L’Ahuir

This is a must stop for anyone who wants to begin the day with their dogs on the Valencian coast. A strong family-oriented essence combines with crystalline waters on this beach in Gandía. But your dog must have a leash on him/her at all times and, when both of you are in the water, he/she can be freed without a problem.


  • Playa Agua Amarga 


A beach that was meant to be the best dog-friendly beach in Spain, and which was inaugurated last year. The perfect spot to enjoy the Alicantino shores with your best bud. It has over 250 meters of sandy strands and also a chiringuito for dogs only which serves food, drinks and several other things.


  • Na Patana


Now let’s head to a beautiful island of the Balearics, Mallorca. Our buddies can play on Na Patana and visit this charming beach all year long. Different services, including toilets, are available, and you can also rent various types of chairs.

  • El Puertito 


From one island to another, we travel to stunning Tenerife, where you can enjoy yourself with your dog in the calm waters of the Canary Islands all year long. In 2013, El Puertito became the first beach on the island to allow dogs.


  • Playa Isla de la Toja 


In the Municipio of Pontevedra there’s a unique view of the Toxa Bridge from a gorgeous beach where all dogs are allowed all year round. It has also a great tall pinewood that can help you rest through the hours when sunlight is brightest, and you can enjoy its agility park, made just for our buds.
