Today, whether you’ll be allowed to take your favourite canine along when going on a beach holiday is no longer a restricting factor.

With so many dog friendly beaches all over the globe, Spot can now become a beach-hopping world traveller too.

Below are our top picks for dog friendly beach destinations.

Montrose Dog Beach

Chicago’s Montrose Dog Beach is situated in the northwest corner of Montrose Beach, Lake Michigan.

This special location makes for long and fun hours in the sunshine.

This is a special location to take your furry friend as it offers everything from a dog-wash to a dog-food truck that sells treats and biscuits.

Remember to get a clearance from your vet before travelling to Montrose Dog Beach.

Block Island

Block Island is located in Rhode Island. This is another perfect travel destination when taking your furry friend on the perfect beach outing.

Block Island is a clean beach, meaning no unpleasant surprises. Also, there are ferries that will welcome your furry pooches as they take a trip with you – and best of all, they travel for free.

Del Mar Dog Beach

Del Mar Dog Beach, California, is the perfect off-the-least beach location.

Nearly half a mile long and bordering beautiful Solana Beach, this beautiful landscape makes for long days of frolicking and games. And after that last ball has been fetched, there’s a beautiful sunset to enjoy alongside your canine companion, or you can simply lie back and play online pokies in New Zealand while Fido catches his breath.

Burrow Beach

Dublin’s Burrow Beach was awarded the Green Coast Award for 2018.

The long stretch of sand connects Howth Head to the Irish mainland and is located very near the stunning Irish Sea.

Here too, there’s everything every dog could ever want from the perfect day at the beach – including a dog shower and a food stop.

Spot will thank you for it.

Skateholm Beach

Located close to Skateholm campsite, Sweden’s Skateholm Beach is a one-shop-stop for both man and his best friend.

Here too, your favourite pooch will get to run free with his ears flapping in the cool breeze. This unique location is open from dawn to dusk, meaning long hours of play before a relaxing rest back at camp.

Jekyll Island Beach

Jekyll Island Beach, which is located in Jekyll Island Georgia, is the perfect spot to play fetch.

This driftwood heaven is any doggo’s dream come true.

The only thing to be on the lookout for are those times during the day when the beach becomes inaccessible due to high tides. Still, it’s a perfect location for a holiday with your pet.

Haulover Beach Park

Florida’s Haulover Beach Park is the perfect bark park for the canine traveller and his human.

There’s everything a dog could ever ask for, including drinking fountains, waste bags, and picnic tables. The bark park is open from 8 until sunset, 7 days a week.

This is a must-visit for travelling canine companions.

Dog Beach, Fort Myers Beach

We’ve saved the best for last. Dog Beach, Fort Myers Beach, Florida, is designed especially for canines and their owners.

Off-the-least frolicking isn’t only allowed – it’s encouraged.
