Dog Friendly Beaches List in Portugal

In order to make it easier for you to reach these places, we have plotted all these beaches on a Google Map. You can also find the coordinates if you click the pins. Some coordinates may not be 100% exact as we did not go and verify each beach personally.

However, in most cases the dog friendly part of the beach would be to the side of the main beach.

We always recommend that wherever you go, you still have a look for any signs just in case something would have changed, in which case please tell us so we update this article!

If you find this helpful, we encourage you to share this article with your friends. By doing so you would be helping us as well.

Know the law first so you are on the good side!

Additionally, we strongly advise that you have a read through our related article explaining Pet Law in Portugal just to make sure that you are on the right side of the law. You can also download a copy of the law from that article. Wherever you go just be prudent and respect others.


Please make sure to PICK UP YOUR DOG’S SHIT!

Regardless of how big or dog friendly some beaches may be, we should take care of them and keep them clean.

Carry poop bags (biodegradable please) with you and leave no shitprint behind! If you want to go full eco then take some newspaper with you and pick the shit up with that.

Carry Plenty of Water

Make sure that you have plenty of water to keep your dog hydrated at the beach. Avoid the sun and make sure to read all about heat stroke in dogs and how to avoid it.
