Dog walking on the beach during the holidays

Dec 2021 – According to the George Municipality, the following beach areas do not allow dogs on the beach although dogs are allowed on the sidewalks of the beach areas but must be on a leash.

Beaches include Herold’s Bay, Gwaiing River Mouth, Victoria Bay and the Leentjiesklip areas.

Wilderness Beach from the estuary onwards falls under the control of SANPARKS and as such, they have an infographic which clearly demarcates where dogs are allowed and where not.
