Living with pets in Spain

You don't have to go on vacation to the mountains or to the countryside when you really need a beach vacation, as you have a dog. And, of course, you don’t have to wait for the evening to go to the beach with your dog, when there will be no one around who could fine you. Many people ask whether dogs are allowed on beaches in Spain, and the answer may be yes, although it depends on which beach you visit. There are many options when dogs can go with you to the beach in Spain, swim in the sea and play for hours on the shore.

Throughout Spain, from Murcia to the Costa del Sol, Majorca and Northern Spain, there are pet-friendly beaches. This means that you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to a vacation spot or relocation with your fluffy friend. Today, we will take a closer look at the 5 best coastal areas for dogs in Spain, where you can go any day of the year (even in summer and in high season) at any time and where there are many other dogs so that your pet will not be bored. Just remember that you need to carry your documents with you and leave the beach clean — the way it was before your walk.

We are here to help you choose areas with apartments and villas to stay near beaches where pets are allowed.
