This beach is a great place to soak up the sun with your four-legged companion with dog-friendly cafes and bars nearby. Keep in mind that pets need to be on a lead between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. during daylight savings and bring dog tidy bags with you as well.
Another coastal hotspot that’s an easy drive from the city centre, West Beach beckons with a dog-friendly area that extends for a couple of kilometres.
