Poppit dog-friendly beach near Cardigan, Wales


Huge sandy beach on Teifi Estuary near Cardigan. Open to dogs all year with just one small area where dogs are not welcome.  Added by tknorn:   Huge beach near Cardigan. It is THE beach to go to if you're a dog in the area. Usually more dogs than people. Lots of sea to romp in and some small sticks to fetch. 


GPS coords for car park: 52.1041, -4.6990  Large car park, and an extra field for overspill in the summer. P&D. Cafe with good cakes, and they sell doggie ice-cream. New owners in 2024 have tried to move the cafe a bit upmarket. WCs by the lifeboat station. Freshwater hosepipe by the WCs to wash feet and dogs.


You could spend hours tiring the dog out at this marvellous beach. There are also paths up into the hills and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path too.

Open sandy beach as far as you can see

Lovely beach with lots of sand and the added sniffy dog bonus of dunes. Sadly there is also a lot of dog poo left behind in these out of sight areas, so watch where you walk.

Lots of dogs on the beach running free, some have no recall, so if your dog is in training or on a long line as a puppy this can be a bit of a trial, Even in Winter this appears to be the place to go with your dog.

Parking area can get busy very quickly, and you need to pay. Cafe on edge of beach also gets busy too.

This is probably the best beach for those dog owners who have been disappointed with Ceredigion beaches (with their very limited availability to dogs in summer).
