Have a pup-friendly summer: the best dog walking spots in Marbella

Summer is in full swing in Marbella, and while for most people that means time at the beach, there’s nothing worse than having to tear yourself away from a day in the sun to go home and let the dog out. What’s more, it seems just plain mean that because of beach regulations our four-legged family members miss out on some quality family time.

Dog Beaches In Marbella

But this summer that has all changed, as dog-friendly beaches have opened in the El Pinillo area in Marbella and the Ventura del Mar in Nueva Andalucia. The zones, each around 250 meters long, are proving to be very popular with local dogs, who are very happy to have a chance to dip their paws in the sea during the hot summer, as well as with their owners who are glad to have yet more dog walking spots available to them.

Dog Rules In Marbella

There are, however, some rules in effect to ensure that the beach stays safe and pleasant for everyone: Owners must be in full control of their dog at all times, carry proof of their dog’s vaccinations, respect other beach users and clean up any dog mess. For more information you can go on to redcanina that gives information about all dog beaches along Spain.

Dogs are allowed to walk along the length of the Paseao Maritimo (the beach-front path that runs between Marbella and Puerto Banus) all year round, so long as they are kept off the beach. This path is also used for walkers and cyclists, so it may be wise to keep your dog on a lead here.


Dog Parks In Marbella

For other year-round dog walking options, Marbella has a number of dog-friendly parks, including the Parque de Nagueles in Marbella and the Parque de los Tres Jardines in San Pedro. For a walk that takes you off the beaten track, the La Quinta Resovoir is also very popular with dog walkers.
