Dogs on the Beach
From the 1 May - 30 September the following beaches are dog friendly and are marked with signs. During other times ALL beaches are dog friendly.
When you take your dog/s on the beach they must be supervised and under control at all times and any fouling must be cleared immediately (£500 fine).
Remember, dogs must be on a lead at all times while on all the promenades.
Please also note, when the sea is very rough and waves are crashing down, as you would keep your children and yourselves away from the waters edge, please do the same for you dog.

**Although the beach at Ovingdean Cafe is dog friendly, we ask all dog owners to be mindful of others, especially when the lifeguard post is open. We encourage people to swim on lifeguarded beaches and do not want them to be put off by an over excited dog.
If you have any further enquiries please contact the Seafront Office or speak to a lifeguard.
