Dogs on the Beach


Dogs are welcome on most beaches and areas of the Northern Pegasus Bay coastal strip. However to protect ecological values and bird habitat around the Ashley River/Rakahuri estuary and wetlands, dogs are not allowed in that area.

Here are some other key things you need to know before exercising your dog at the beach:

  • Dogs are not allowed in the areas between surf patrol flags or within 50 metres of the flags
  • Dogs must be under continuous and effective control at all times
  • Dogs which are unable to be under effective voice control around horses must be on a leash
  • Carry plenty of poo bags to pick up after your dog
