    touring france in june for first time . are dogs allowed on the beaches ? especially in the south around nice ,port griimald etc . found a few promising sites right on the shoreline that accept dogs but then read somewhere else that no dogs were allowed actually on the beach .

    Hi !


    Each town hall has its own rules so best is to have a look around along the beach and see if there's any sign saying dogs are not allowed! If you can't find any then go and ask to the rescuers (little house on the beach where the flag saying you can go to swim/ can't go to swim, is). They'll be able to tell you . Usually when there's no sign, it does mean dogs are allowed but sometimes it's a whole "departement" (Nice is 06)which doesn't allow them and according to the french law: "nobody is supposed to ignore the law". So they are not obliged to put any sign. YOU have to check at the town hall.

    I'm afraid there's no other way to check. We, french, have to check too!

    Bon séjour, et bon voyage!!!

    Amicalement

    Hi

    Good advice from Frankie... :thumb:

    From what I have seen, as a general rule dogs are not allowed on beaches during the season where there is a lifeguard or a designated swimming, surfing or water sports zone. These are clearly marked.

    However, remoter beaches are usually dog friendly, but always check as advised by Frankie..
