Dogs on Wells Beach

Dogs are allowed on the beach at Wells all year round subject to certain restrictions. An area of the beach is kept dog free so that people can dig in the sand without fear of finding something unpleasant. At nesting time areas of the beach are roped off to protect nesting birds and people are asked to keep dogs on leads for the same reason. Holkham beach has the same seasonal restrictions. Dog owners are asked to keep dogs on leads until they get on to the beach, and to clear up any mess.
