Hundestrände in Spanien: Toben am Beach


I’ve already said that I’m actually a forest sniffer. My mistress always says that she doesn’t miss anything about Germany except the forest and the soft, good-smelling forest floor. Here on the Costa Blanca, Chef and I can only sniff out rabbits among the olive groves. If you want real forests, you have to go to the north of Spain. But we Wuffs have plenty of beaches to romp on in fall and winter. And in summer there are even extra dog beaches, although in my opinion it’s usually too hot for everything at this time anyway :).

But we Wuffs have plenty of beaches to romp on in fall and winter. And in summer there are even extra dog beaches, although in my opinion it’s usually too hot for everything at this time anyway :). See also my article: Best time to travel with dogs in Spain. In principle, dogs are prohibited on most beaches in Spain during the season (until 30.9.). Dogs can like it however they like, but the bottom line is that it’s no fun walking on the hellishly hot sand with sensitive paws. Not even on the asphalt, by the way. Unfortunately, I keep seeing poor fellows whose packs don’t know any better and drag their four-legged friends around in the blazing midday heat.

But back to the topic. There are secluded natural beaches where we four-legged friends are also allowed to sunbathe in summer. Depending on the region, you can also splash and jump in the sea late in the evening. However, the regulations are very different, so that I could not sniff out a binding statement.

Wo Sand und Meer warten

But there are also more and more dog beaches in Spain. Well, in some areas there are nasty stone beaches, which are nothing for me anyway. But some tourist regions have already recognized that more and more guests and locals are coming to visit with four-legged friends and are not simply adapting to this.

They have also noticed that the dog beaches are usually cleaner than those of the two-legged friends. Hence my appeal to all bosses and mistresses: If we ever have to do our business on the beach, please always have dog waste bags with you , preferably biodegradable;). However, biodegradable does not mean that you should just throw them anywhere.

Don’t forget: We dogs value cleanliness ;).
