Since Lockdown, I know Torrevieja restricted dog access to just the El Rocío beach. 
Does anyone know whether this applies to Off Season as well? I would love to take our puppy for a romp on the sand and a paddle in the sea.

I posted this on the Pets area of the forum, but have had no replies, so apologies if this isn’t in the right place, but I’m sure there must be readers here that are fully versed with the local laws. Thanks in advance.

Hello

https://www.theolivepress.es/spain-news/2020/06/07/british-expats-outraged-as-dogs-banned-from-all-beaches-in-town-on-spains-costa-blanca-apart-from-dangerous-rocky-outcrop/

This was announced when the decison was made re dogs on Torrevieja beaches, it was an all year round decision - not seasonal and   in the planning process long before Covid 19 which I suppose has endorsed it even more. I know my own local beach in La Mata is still very busy so it wouldnt be appropriate there, I  dont know if there is anywhere else, more isolated that you could take your puppy.

Cheers

Thank you Kara. Is the Playa Flamenco one El Rocio, near the Nautilus? I’ve heard poor reports of this being dangerous and rocky - I was hoping for some nice sand to run on and a dip in the sea.

Looks lovely. I’d definitely take a drive up there for a fun hour or two on the beach

Hello,

Since I posted on this subject today, I got a reply from someone  via P.M regarding Guardamar beaches - she called in to the Guardia today & asked them if dogs were allowed on beaches now its off season, this is their reply.

"Well the answer is No, no dogs on ANY beach, any time, regardless of the time of year."

 She went on to say she took her dog to the natural park in La Mata today & although they are not allowed in the protected areas ,the picnic areas      or near the lake, there is an area of wasteland off the main road that is deserted & safe for them to run free

Cheers

If you park near surfers bar and have the bar behind you go to your left and walk round the beach you see via the path on to the open land and then follow round to the left the sandy  beach is down the little piece of grounds. You cannot see it until you have walked round. It is an unofficial official beach all the Spanish use.

There is another thread active on the Forum at present about doggy beaches and people have said that the police have been patrolling and issuing fines there.
