Pomorskie offers picturesque, sandy beaches, but not all will allow your beloved pet onto their premises. We have prepared a list of dog-friendly beaches together with a comprehensive list of what to remember about when taking your best friend to the seaside.
In the low season, you can freely walk your dog on almost all of the beaches in Pomorskie. During the season, May 1 to September 30, cities impose certain restrictions. The regulations are not uniform, and depend on the city where the beach is located. Therefore, before you take your pet to the seaside, check the current guidelines, available on official city websites.
Walking a dog on the beach in Gdańsk
In low season, Gdańsk allows you to take your dog to any beach. In high season, you can still walk almost everywhere, except guarded beaches, which are properly marked. However, if you are looking for a safe fenced area, why not check out Brzeźno (entrance no. 34) and the so-called Dog Station. Apart from a sandy enclosure, there are also several interesting toys and gadgets – a straight tunnel, slalom poles and crossbars for jumping. The area is open 24/7 all year round, but the exercise equipment is dismantled for the winter to protect it from flooding.
Walking a dog on the beach in Gdynia
Walking your dog on a beach is forbidden in high season in Gdynia. The city, however, designated several places with your pets in mind. The first one is located at entrance No. 4 in Babie Doły, where you have 200 metres of sandy enclosure at your disposal. The second dog beach is located in Kolibki (entrances number 18 and 19). It is a true dog paradise, and the enclosure will not let your pets get bored. The dog playground includes jumping frames, tunnels and swings for animals.

Dog beaches in Pomorskie – things to consider
Regardless of the time of year – in season or out of season, you should always remember to clean up after your pet. If you leave dog waste, you will be fined 500 PLN. Also remember to respect the nature and do not to enter dunes and nature reserves with your four-legged friends. Please also keep in mind to always walk your pet on a leash outside the enclosures, and in the case of large breeds and those considered aggressive – also with a muzzle.
