Dogs on the beach
It is worth noting that from October to April the whole of the beach is accessible to dogs. Even out of this time, the only dog free zone is between the two slipways allowing the remaining six and a half miles of beach for me to play on! There is plenty of space to run around and have a proper workout with lots of other dogs to play with.
Pendine Sands Beach
Pendine sands beach is about 1 hour away from the Falcondale but well worth the car journey as it has a 7 mile sandy beach overlooking the Gower peninsula. During low tide the sea can be seen in the far distance allowing room for extra miles of sandy beach; this was perfect for digging holes. The weather was so lovely I even went for a little swim in the sea to cool down following my exuberant run around. I had so much fun I decided to have a siesta next to some rocks I’d found.
There are cafes, toilets, shops and plenty of parking close to the beach. Lifeguards are on duty between May and September and designated areas of the beach is popular with jet ski and windsurfers.
Most of the cafes and shops have water bowls outside so that I could have a drink. Bins were located in several places so any bags could be disposed of.
