At the start of the half term holidays, South Hams District Council has this advice for dog owners heading to the coast with their pets to make sure it’s beach-time bliss for everyone. The forecast is looking good for the half-term holidays and beaches are likely to be a popular choice with families and dog walkers alike.

  • Slapton Sands
  • Salcombe North
  • Sections of Sugary Cove
  • Bovisand
  • Beesands
