Lots of people dream about a beach vacation, but hesitate to take one because they don’t want to leave a pet behind. However, there is no need to settle for a kennel or a pet sitter. You can enjoy some fun in the sun on a beach vacation with your pet. It is easier than ever to find accommodations at a beach that welcome your pets, and a little extra planning and preparation is all that is required to have a wonderful time on vacation with your pet.
Make sure you choose a beach that allows pets. Use the internet to determine whether a beach is pet friendly. You can look at a beach’s website, lists of pet-friendly beaches, or the parks and recreation department of the city where you will be traveling. They will tell you about any restrictions on pets at the local beaches, such as seasonal restrictions where dogs are only allowed on the beach during the off season.
- There are some beaches, particularly private ones, that won’t let you have your pet on them. For example, California has some the most pet-friendly beaches in America, but there are still likely some beaches there that don’t allow pets.
