Best beaches to take your dog in Sydney

Taking your dog to the beach is a stimulating and fun adventure. Saltwater, in particular, has therapeutic properties, and a little sunshine boosts the intake of vitamin D. Swimming also offers multiple health benefits to your dog, such as improving circulation, increasing metabolism, decreasing inflammation, and strengthening the heart and lungs.

Although dogs love beaches, not all beaches in Sydney are perfect for your pet. Let us be your guide with our list of the best beaches to take your dog to in Sydney:

  • Rose Bay Beach — This beautiful dog beach in Sydney is right next door to Rose Bay cafes and shops, and boasts iconic Sydney Harbour views. There’s an off-leash zone between the Dumaresq reserve and Percival Park, where your dog can stretch their legs in the sand and paddle in the calm ocean water.



  • Patonga Beach — The area between Jacaranda Avenue and Brisk Street is one of the most dog-friendly beaches on the Central Coast. It’s an off-the-leash area where your dog can run wild and free.



  • Ettalong Beach — The calm waters along Ettalong Beach will provide your dog with a safe place to splash around. It’s like a protected bay with loads of sandbanks for your dog to play on!



  • Sirius Cove Reserve — This is a dog-friendly beach in the suburb of Mosman. It has plenty of shade in the grassed area behind the beach, where your dog can rehydrate continue the fun back on dry land.



  • Clifton Gardens Beach — You can take your dog to exercise at Clifton Gardens Beach all day Monday to Friday and before 9am and after 4pm on weekends and public holidays. You and your dog will love the stunning water views!



  • Kutti Beach, Vaucluse — This relatively unknown beach is tucked away in the Eastern Suburbs. It’s a very narrow beach where you can take your dog for a swim or walk. 



  • Spit West Reserve — This is a large dog-friendly park area situated near the Spit Bridge in Mosman. Unleashed dogs are allowed in the water and on the beach all day from Monday to Friday.
