First dog beach in Marbella

Dog owners in Marbella  have now a beach where they can take their pets to play and swim, while Estepona has announced plans for a similar facility on one of its beaches. 

Last month Marbella launched a new dog friendly beach, located at Linda Vista in San Pedro de Alcántara. It will be open to dogs during the low season, from October 15 to May 15. 

The truth is that the number of Spanish beaches where you can go with a dog is pretty poor. Therefore the concept of dog-friendly beaches becomes increasing phenomenon in Spain. Owners are asked to provide their own plastic bags to pick up mess and put it in one of the many bins provided on the beach. Fines for not cleaning away after dogs can be very high, even up to 600 euro.

Here you can see a list of beaches on Costa del Sol where you can go with your dogs. It’s very important to check cities regulations before going there, as they keep changing all the time and there are slot constraints in some of them.
