Pembrokeshire is known for having some of the best dog-friendly beaches in the UK offering the perfect space to let your four-legged friend off the lead for a good run around. 

From the wide expanses of Marloes to the more secluded bays of Broad Haven south, there is no shortage of dog-friendly beaches in the area. 

There are more than 50 beaches across Pembrokeshire that welcome dogs, however, there are some that have certain restrictions. 

From May 1 to September 30, during the height of summer, some of the more popular beaches have dog-restricted areas. 

While there are restrictions in place each year during the warmer months - which are identified by signs - the Visit Pembrokeshire website says: "This still allows you access to miles and miles of beach on which to walk your dog".

But as we enter October, these restrictions have now been lifted and dogs are allowed to roam freely on Pembrokeshire beaches once again.
