Pet-friendly beaches

All the rules you need to respect when bringing your dog to the seaside

Romagna is a welcoming and hospitable land. Just like everyone else and just as it has always been, every year, when the summer arrives, people flock to the coasts of the Adriatic sea, and it is no different for our faithful four-legged friends, who join their human families.

From the lidos of Comacchio to the beaches of Cattolica, the whole coastline offers a wide range of services and spaces designed specifically with pets in mind.

Every year, by 31 March, the Emilia-Romagna Region issues a bathing ordinance that constitutes the legal framework to be respected and safeguarded, which includes restrictions and access procedures for dogs on the beach. After this, all the Municipalities of the Adriatic Riviera add to this with their own supplementary ordinance, outlining specific terms, criteria and procedures to be followed in order to guarantee the quality of the service they offer.

Guidelines to follow before leaving:

  • Read the current Ordinanza Regionale balneare [Regional Bathing Ordinance]
  • Check the terms of the Supplementary Ordinance currently in force by the Municipality in which you are going on holiday
