Dogs are allowed on most of The Suffolk Coast’s beaches, however on many of our most popular stretches, there are restrictions over the summer months so best to look out for signs that give exact dates for a particular beach.
Whilst some stretches don't allow dogs during the summer months, many including Lowestoft, Southwold, Aldeburgh and Felixstowe have parts to the north and south of the main beaches which do all year round.
One beach that does allow dogs year-round is Dunwich; a haven for canines and owners, you will both love exploring the sand and heathland, and after a long walk, you can enjoy a cold beverage in The Ship Inn whilst your pooch tucks into a dog biscuit.
If seclusion is what you desire, head to Covehithe. Only accessible on foot, you can walk your dog along the quiet lane heading to the sea (best keep the dog on a lead here due to the nearby pig fields!) before letting them loose on the open beach for a game of fetch and a swim in the sea.
