What is the dog beach in Dénia?

01 June 2022 - 14: 00

The coast of Dénia is one of the biggest attractions of the city. However, it is not always accessible to everyone. Pets, in fact, are not usually welcome on the seashore. There is only one beach that admits dogs in the city, located on the north breakwater of the port. However, depending on the date, you can also enjoy the rest of the coast with your four-legged companions.

Next you have an index with all the points that we are going to deal with.

The historic claim of families with pets

In Dénia there has always been a sector of the population, increasingly larger, that has claimed spaces to enjoy the coast in summer with their pets. In fact, for a few years there has been a beach that allows dogs for twelve months, but it is a very limited corner and lacks the services or care of the rest of the beaches.

However, during much of the year you can access almost the entire Dianense coastline with a dog. Always outside the high summer season, so sun and beach tourism does not benefit from this measure that could serve as a claim for families with pets.

Dog beach

As we said, there is a small corner of the beach where the presence of dogs is allowed. In this one, which is known as dog beach without more, people and dogs coexist to enjoy the sand and a good bath away from the prohibitions.

Features

It is a sandy beach formed between several breakwaters, so the presence of vegetation such as posidonia is common. Its extension does not exceed 100 meters, so users have little space to enjoy with their families.

Location

It is located on the north breakwater of the port, between the beach Punta del Raset and the station Baleària. It is a place of easy access from the urban area, since it is a very short distance from it, so it is not necessary to take the car. In fact, it is recommended to walk since there is no parking space. public parking near.

Reviews

Although it is a highly demanded space, his opinions are usually quite negative. Many users criticize the little section given to the dog beach and its condition, since, being a place between breakwaters, it is very common for a large amount of posidonia to accumulate.

Other beaches that allow dogs

Although the aforementioned is the only beach considered for dogs, The truth is that in most of the beaches of Dénia dogs are allowed outside the high and mid-summer season.

In almost all the natural beaches of Dénia the presence of dogs is allowed from November 1 to March 1. In the case of the urban beaches of the Marineta Cassiana and a stretch of Marines, Pets are allowed until June 1.

Now, there are some exceptions. Both the end of Les Deveses as in the area of ​​l'Alberca, in the Els Molins beach, the presence of dogs is totally prohibited throughout the year.

In addition, restricted areas that cannot be walked on are marked. These are the regenerating dunes, breeding areas also for the plover plover, a protected native species.

    We should turn this news into a crusade by civilized people who don't want dogs on beaches. I understand that for their owners, barking pets are "cute" and they perform a well-known companionship. But PLEASE do not force the rest of us citizens to bear the potential illnesses that a dog and its excrement and urine can cause to those of us who DO comply with the regulations.
    RESPECTFUL CITIZENS who read this, please express yourselves and give your opinion. Let's see if for once the City Council pays attention to us.

      Hello Esmeralda, as a dog owner I tell you that you are right. The problem is not the dogs but the people who do not pick up and watch their dogs do their business and pick up/clean them. But I think there should be delimited and sanctioned zones if that is not the case so that we can all have what we want. Thank you

      Schon mal drüber nachgedacht, was sonst noch so alles im Meer schwimmt? Es gibt Lebewesen, die leben darin und lassen alles ins Meer. Ganz zu schweigen von dem ganzen Unrat, den Menschen ins Meer schütten. And Sie wollen von Hunden krank werden????
      Ich habe selten so viel Intoleranz erlebt wie in diesen Kommentaren. Und man muss nicht Hundebesitzer sein, um das schlimm zu finden.
      Was leben hier für Menschen???
      Toleranz ist übrigens ein Teil von Zivilisiertheit…

      • Emerald says:

        It is gibt einen Hundestrand. Warum benutzen Sie sie nicht? Tun Sie uns den Gefallen und bringen Sie Ihr geliebtes Haustier dorthin, wo es hingehört. Ich bin mir sicher, dass Sie in Ihrem Land nicht so viele Rechte für Ihren Hund haben.
        Spanish translation: There is a beach for dogs. Why don't you use it? Do us a favor and take your beloved pet to its rightful place. Surely in your country they do not give you so many rights for your dog.

    Dogs on the beach are dirty, they piss and shit with total impunity from their owners, then we humans go barefoot and step on the poop of the dogs. I don't know if you have stepped on dog poop barefoot but I must tell you that it is the most unpleasant thing. The poop gets between the toes, and to remove it we need to use our hands with which we have poop on our feet, hands and even in our eyes if we get dirt in them.
    DOGS ON THE BEACH NEVER

      It is totally unhygienic and a source of diseases but there are the owners who care little.

      • Mayte says:

        I don't understand how dog owners aren't all already sick with the number of diseases that you say dogs transmit... Most dogs are vaccinated, it's mandatory, and they have a health check because they live with us at home, with our children . I have grown up with dogs and so have my children and not one health problem related to them.

        • Doggy says:

          I hallucinate with the absurd comments of the people. Beaches are for everyone, not just for your children to run and play and cry and fill your towel with sand when they run around and play and enjoy... it's the last straw! The crying of children on a plane annoys me, for example, and I have to resign myself to it. Because children cry and dogs bark. If it bothers you, put on some earplugs or stay home but let others enjoy and be happy... (the idiot doesn't bother you...)

    I agree that a beach for dogs be enabled, but that it be clean, not because it is for dogs it has to be in poor condition.
    I went once with my dog ​​to the beach for dogs and I have not come back, my dog ​​is a white Maltese Bichon with long hair, he went to the beach to bathe and came out completely dirty and full of algae that got tangled up in his hair and it was very difficult for me to take it off since a lot of algae floated in the water and the sand was also full of them.
    That is why I ask that it be cleaned periodically and that it be in good condition for the animals.

    • Luis says:

      If they don't clean for humans, they will clean for dogs. Don't you bathe in the sea with your Bichon Maltese longhair? What do you think about the level of cleanliness for human use?

      Very well said bravo!!!!

    You are very, very wrong, Mr. Moncho. All Denia's beaches allow pets, to the shame and discredit of our city, because there are signs prohibiting access to dogs, but it seems that all dog owners are illiterate, because they don't know. I, who walk the entire Dianense coast on a daily basis, can attest to what I say. Specifically this morning on the beach of Els Molins there were dogs with masters. And every day I see and have been seeing for the last two years lots of dogs around Les Deveses. There are people, in addition, who have up to 3 and 4 dogs.

Frankly, I find it disrespectful to users, both domestic and foreign, that their owners' furry pets urinate and also defecate in the sand where one then lies down. Including the children. When is our mayor going to take this issue seriously, very seriously, and send vigilantes and authorized members to force dog owners to take them elsewhere? As far as I know, the prohibition of animals on the beach is included in all European legislation, but only in some "remote" and "primitive" places like Denia do they turn a blind eye and give free rein to this absolute lack of respect and civility

    • Rob says:

      Honden zijn minder vervuilend, dan de mensen. Zij laten geen afval achter wat de natuur schade toebrengt en dodelijk is voor de zeedieren. De mens doet dat wel.Geen Europese wetgeving op het verbod van mensen op het strand even min als voor dieren, wel plaatselijke verordingen.

    Hello, also that beach is not always open since it is closed, because it was breeding I do not know what bird and they closed the beach.
    It is a space that for me is not suitable, at least for my dog. We actually went one day and left, dirty and poorly maintained. And I don't know if for other people their dog is just a dog but for me it is not one of the family. there are beaches towards the marinas that would be better to accept pets.
