These bans are enforced by leisure staff but from October 1 restrictions are relaxed.

Councillor Rhys Sinnett, cabinet member for residents’ services at Pembrokeshire County Council, said: “Pembrokeshire has many beautiful beaches and there are just a small number where dogs are restricted during certain months.

“We are asking visitors and residents alike to respect all our beaches by sticking to the restrictions in place. Dog owners on all beaches must also make sure they clean up after their dogs so our coastline can be enjoyed by everyone.”

You can view detailed maps online to discover what areas of beaches allow dogs to be walked, with or without a lead.
