A review is due to be carried out to see whether more beaches in Guernsey should ban dogs over the summer months.
Currently, dog owners are being reminded that from 1st May until 30th September, dogs will not be allowed on some beaches in Guernsey.
The aim of this is to help protect local wildlife, allow those not so keen on canines to enjoy the beach, and prevent dog waste.
The seven restricted Guernsey beaches are:
- Petit Bot
- Port Soif
This map highlights beaches which remain unrestricted to dog owners in Guernsey.
Four beaches in Herm are also out of bounds to dogs over the summer:
- Shell Beach
- Belvoir Bay
- Fisherman’s Beach
- The area of beach in front of the White House Hotel to the Herm Harbour Jetty
The States are asking dog owners to 'remain mindful of other beach users and local wildlife'.
Dog owners are being urged to keep their dogs under control near other beach users, and ensure their dogs do not interfere with birds.
Dog owners are also being reminded that dogs are not permitted on Lihou Island.
