Important for going to beaches with dogs in Menorca

If your dog is of a breed considered dangerous, out of water must be tethered and muzzled or it could lead to unpleasant consequences with sanctions by the authorities or unfortunate events with other bathers.

In other municipalities on the island, the movement and stay of dogs and other animals on the beaches is generally prohibited during the bathing season, which runs from 1 May to 31 October. The ordinance specific that violation of this rule may result in a corresponding fine. In any case, Maó Town Council plans to update the municipal ordinance created in 2008, due to high demand from homeowners.

With this information, you will be able to enjoy the dog-friendly beaches in Menorca. Don't wait any longer and make your plans to enjoy together!
