Walton on the Naze has beautiful sandy beaches and for many people a day at the seaside is a rare opportunity to have their dog join in on the fun too.

It’s a very dog friendly place and many of the cafés and pubs will have water bowls outside for your pooch. Along most parts of the beach dogs are allowed all year round but there are restrictions in place May – September in some areas. During those months dogs are allowed on the prom but must be kept on a lead and are not allowed on the beach.

Where Are The Restricted Areas?

The areas with restrictions are on Central beach from the Pier to the end of the Parade opposite Suffolk Street, and on Eastcliff beach from Percival Road to Naze Park Road. (Map pictured)

Are Your Huts In The Restricted Areas?

All but two of our huts are on an unrestricted part of Eastcliff beach (in the yellow area to the right of the red restricted area on this map) so your dog can join you in there at any time of the year. We even provide some dog treats, a water bowl, and some doggy poo bags.

If you bring your doggo along and want to take them further up the beach for a walk, do pay attention to the signs along the prom which indicate where the restrictions are.

The fines for having a dog on the restricted part of the beach are really steep.

We can’t think of anything nicer than having your furry furry friend join in your games on the sand and if you want to take a longer walk then the Naze is a brilliant place for dogs to explore.
