Is my dog allowed on the beach?

Dogs are allowed on the beaches without any restriction from October 1 to March 31. Dogs remain welcome on the beach in April, May, June and September, but only before 10 a.m. and after 6:30 p.m. During the months of July and August dogs are allowed before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m.
 

Dogs are allowed to run freely on the beach except on the Sportstrand and in the area between Westlaan and the border with the municipality of Middelkerke. This last part is after all a nature reserve whith many waders that could be startled by stray dogs. The owner and / or supervisor of the dog should always be able to take full control of his/her dog. Public order may not be disturbed by the presence of the dog.
Dogs must always be kept on a leash:
on the Sportstrand 
in the area between Westlaan (Raversijde) (beach head 15bis) and the border with the municipality of Middelkerke (between beach heads 19 and 20).
