Barkworthy: Dog Friendly Beaches


Summer is here, woo hoo! If you haven’t already, you might be planning a family trip or weekend getaway. Well, our furry family members deserve a little vaycay too! This month we are highlighting a couple of fun Dog Friendly Beaches in New York.


1. Montauk Beach: Old Montauk Highway and Lincoln Rd. Montauk, NY
Although dogs are not permitted on the beach between the hours of 9am and 6pm from May 15th through the end of September, this beach is a great option if you’re looking to skip the crowd. Let your pooch run wild and free (of course with supervision), as there are no leash laws in Montauk. Enjoy the sunrise or sunset while your dog is having the time of their life running in an open space, digging holes in the sand and maybe even go for a swim. Needless to say, owners are expected to clean up after their dog and exercise control.

Go for a stroll along the beach or even play some fetch. Similar to Montauk Beach season restrictions, dogs are not permitted on the beach between the hours of 9am and 6pm. For safety reasons, dogs must be on a leash within areas that are within 300 feet from any road end along the beach. Plastic bags are conveniently located at the entrances. Be mindful of the summer heat and come prepared. Don’t forget to bring water!
