Dogs on our beaches

Dogs are welcome on the beaches in Rhyl and Prestatyn.  However, not everyone loves dogs, so during the busy summer months you can only take your dog to certain areas of the beach.

When are dogs restricted?

  • 1st October - 30th April: you can take your dog anywhere on the beach.
  • 1st May - 30th September: restrictions are in place, so you can only take your dog to certain areas of the beach.

Where can I take my dog?

While the restrictions are in place, you can only take your dog to the designated dog exercise areas.  These are:

  • the beach area from Old Golf Road, Rhyl, eastwards to Ffrith Festival Gardens, Prestatyn
  • the area to the east of The Sailing Club at Barkby Beach, Prestatyn
There are signs and maps on the beach to show where you can take your dog during the summer months.
