Beaches where you can walk your dog in Spain

Beaches for dogs and their owners in Spain

One of the main problems faced by dog owners going on vacation is far from hotel accommodation, but the lack of beaches where access with animals is allowed during high season. Many owners don’t want to part with their pets for the vacations, nor do they want to leave them in their hotel room all day. However, there are beaches in Spain where visitors with dogs are welcome at any time of year.


There is only one beach in the northwesternmost region of the peninsula that welcomes visitors with dogs. It is the beach of Con Negro, located in O Grove, Pontevedra. There are hardly any tourists here, and the picturesque scenery makes it an ideal place for a leisurely vacation with pets.
