Malta's dog friendly beaches

Nothing is more natural than wanting to take your pet dog swimming with you throughout the summer in Malta if you want to keep them healthy and help them stay cool. However, it can be extremely challenging to find dog-friendly beaches in Malta.


There are a few restrictions and limitations, even on the beaches in Malta that welcome dogs.

  • Keep dogs on leashes.

  • Clean up after your dog

Supposedly, you are required to keep your dog on a leash whenever they are not swimming, but in reality, all that is required is that they are calm and under control. You should be fine as long as they are sitting next to you while you are relaxing in the sun and aren't annoying other people.
