Rules pertaining to dogs: outside of the lifeguarded bathing area, on the rest of the beach, whatever the tide level, dogs are only tolerated when kept on a leash.

The presence of horses on the beach is permitted provided they remain on the foreshore beyond the northern extremity of the groynes, away from any visitors, swimmers, walkers or people fishing. When required to cross the forbidden area to join the inland area with the beach, they may do so but in the most perpendicular manner possible to the shoreline. Under no circumstances are horses permitted on the promenade, with the exception of crossing it, on the area in front of and behind the beach cabins.
