Dogs are permitted on adjacent promenades and cliff paths, but must be on a lead.
Dogs are allowed on all other beaches at all times but they must be kept under proper control and you must clear up after your dog.

Imposing a dog ban is an important criteria in the annual Coast Awards and Blue Flag schemes.
The beaches with seasonal bans are covered by local Byelaws. These are enforced by our Seafront team. Each banned area is very clearly identified by information signs at every entry point.
Failing to comply with beach bans and control orders could result in a maximum penalty of £500.
Remember the laws for cleaning up after your dog are in force all over the Tendring District.
