Saundersfoot Beach

South Pembrokeshire, Saundersfoot, near Tenby, SA69

A wide flat, sandy beach with a small harbour. From here you can take a short walk eastwards to Wisemans Bridge along the route of the old railway via Coppet Hall. At very low tide it’s possible to walk as far as Amroth along the shore, or in the opposite direction to Monkstone with Glen Beach en route. Popular with dog walkers, Saundersfoot has enough space for dogs to enjoy some off lead exercise as well as the opportunity to extend the walk if desired.

Dog restrictions 1st May to 30th September on eastern side.

Pay and Display car parks:-

  • The Harbour – Cambrian Place
  • Regency Hall – Milford Street (200 metres from the beach)

    Hi Dog Rover,

    Does any of the restrictions lift after or before a certain time of day during September?

    Thanks 🙂

      Hi there Tori,

      Only Coppet Hall at Saundersfoot operates relaxed restrictions, allowing dogs before 10.00am and after 5.00pm.

    Hi Dog Rover, Have just booked 2wks holiday (June/July)is there anywhere we can take the dogs for a swim Saunderfoot/Tenby. Have never been to this part of Wales before and are looking forward to the break. Will be very disappointed if we can not take dogs on beach for a swim.

      Hi Pat,

      Dog bans exist for all beaches in Saundersfoot and Tenby in June and July. However, Coppet Hall beach which is just next to Saundersfoot will allow dogs before 10.00am and after 5.00pm so if you’re staying in Saundersfoot this will be the nearest beach for your pooch to enjoy a swim. From there it’s an easy and pleasant walk to Wiseman’s Bridge beach which is dog friendly all year. Penally beach is the nearest dog friendly beach to Tenby town. It has plenty of space and is easily accessible from Saundersfoot by car or bus. If you do have your own transport, there are lots and lots of other lovely dog friendly beaches around the coast, all listed on the website.

      Hope you have a lovely holiday Pat.

      Hello Niki,

      Wherever a dog ban is in force, Saundersfoot or any other beach, this means no dogs allowed on or off leads.

      All the best

    Hi Dog Rover
    My dog is petrified of gunfire. Is there a firing range anywhere near Saundersfoot, Monkstone or Glen Beach which he might hear if we holidayed there please?

      Hi Shirley,

      The nearest firing range to Saundersfoot is at Penally, approximately 5 miles away, so your dog should not be disturbed by any firing which takes place there.

    Hello there.

    Are there ANY stretches of beach in Saundersfoot which allow dogs? Am REALLY disappointed as we’d found the perfect cottage but may now have to rethink 🙁

      All the beaches in Saundersfoot are dog friendly between October and April, and only a couple have dog restrictions in the summer which is the area by the harbour and Coppet Hall.

    Hello Dog Rover,
    Thank you for this fantastic web site. We are visiting the area for our summer holidays with our bouncy Cocker Spaniel puppy and Jack Russel. It’s so good to be able to plan in advance as to which beaches we can visit – avoiding disappointed children and dogs!!

    Hi Dog Rover, please can you tell me if the restrictions on certain beaches are all day or are our pooches allowed on after 6pm.
    Many Thanks,

      Hi Karen,

      The beaches with dog restrictions in force between May and September have no concessions after 6pm – it is a blanket ban.

      Thanks for visiting the site.

      All the best

    Hi there,
    Are there restrictions in walking you’re dog along the old railway route from Saundersfoot to Amroth in the months of June through to September.

      Hi Peter,

      No dog walking restrictions using the old railway routes, just on the beach between May and September.

    Hi Dogrover….this is such a great site, very very useful!!!! just wanted to say a great beach which is dog friendly all year round is Monkstone beach….you can walk from it from Saundersfoot Harbour all the way along (when the tide is out of course!!!) or drive & park near to Trevayne Farm.

      Hi Jen,

      So glad that you like the site and find it useful. I keep updating it with new locations when I can, so I will be adding Monkstone beach soon. Thanks for letting me know.
