The annual seasonal restrictions on Torbay beaches come into effect on 1st May.
Restricting dogs on Torbay’s main beaches during the summer months enables residents and visitors to bathe safely and is a requirement for those beaches with Blue Flag status, as well as enabling Torbay to maintain its ‘excellent water quality’ rating, issued by the Environment Agency.
Here are the beaches that you can still visit:
Goodrington Sands – North Sands
Meadfoot Beach – North Eastern part of the beach
Peaked Tor Cove
St Marys Bay
The restrictions started on 1st May and will remain in place until 30th September.
All dog owners or walkers are reminded that they are responsible for the control of their pet at all times, as well as picking up after their dog to ensure all areas of Torbay remain safe and clean.
