Now, let’s discover 6 dog-friendly beaches in Valencia.
Oh and pssst, we’ve even included a great chiringuito tip ;-)
1. Playa Canina de Pinedo, Valencia
This dog beach is one of the few within the city. It’s a large, quiet beach located close to the port, which makes it easy to access by public transportation.
Dogs are allowed to relax and make new amigos on this playa from the 15th of June until the 30th of August.
2. Playa Canina de Alboraya, Valencia
We all know our furry friends love belly rubs, but having lots of space to play in the sand probably feels just as good to them. This beach in Valencia city has it all.
Why, you ask? Because besides lots of space to play, there’s even a dog-friendly beach bar: Chiringuito Tres14Beach. We’re big fans ;-)
3. Playa La Torreta-Santa Elvira, El Puig
On the outskirts of the city, you’ll find this rocky and sandy beach. It’s a great place for a little dog adventure, as there are no sun worshipers here.
If you do wanna make yourself comfortable and lie down, we recommend bringing a yoga mat. Now, let’s unleash the beast!
4. Playa El Brosquil, Cullera
This beautiful city in the Valencian province is very popular among Valencianos, but the dog beach is surprisingly calm. That’s probably one of the reasons why your little friend is allowed to run loose. While you have a moment for yourself, you can enjoy some of the beautiful views. This might become your new paradise…
5. La Playa de Agua Amarga, Alicante
Have you ever thought about going on a day trip to Alicante? Then why not visit one of its dog beaches too? La Playa de Agua Amarga (also called: doggy beach), is a large, rocky beach. There’s a chiringuito which offers refreshing drinks too, need we say more?

3000 square meters of cute little coves, that sounds great, right? But it gets even better: it’s all for dogs! This is quite a unique dog beach in the Valencian province, so make sure to check it out.
This list is just a small selection of all the dog–friendly beaches in Valencia, so we’ll share a couple more here. A bonus tip: it’s definitely worth driving up to Alicante, as most dog beaches are located there.
