Dogs on Beaches in South Devon

We’re lucky to be surrounded by so many beautiful, award-winning beaches. We love welcoming four-legged friends onto our sandy shorelines, but note there are restrictions in force on certain areas of our beaches (assistance dogs such as Guide Dogs and Hearing Dogs are exempt).

Where can I walk my dog?
