Are dogs allowed in Galveston?
Galveston Island is the perfect place to take Fido on vacation. All of the Island’s beaches are open to leashed dogs. Business owners and other visitors love seeing your four-legged friends, too. Many businesses along the most popular areas gladly welcome your pets — some even serve them meals and treats!
Is it safe for dogs to go to the beach?
Dogs are welcome to frolic on all beaches in Galveston TX. West End beaches have miles of sand that are perfect for morning walks with sunrise over the Gulf or slow evening strolls with your favorite pup. Looking for a full beach day of fun? Set up your home base on the sand with plenty of water, snacks, and shade. If you stay at a beachfront rental home, you can take breaks on the shaded patio when the sun gets to be too much for you both!
East Beach, located on the Island’s far eastern tip, is a lively place to bring your pooch along for some beach fun. In 2016, Town & Country voted East Beach “One of the Best Dog Friendly Beaches.” It has everything you will need to keep your pet hydrated and safe from the sun’s rays: showers, restrooms, food, drinks, and chair and umbrella rentals. Another great option is Stewart Beach, which Family Vacation Critic voted one of the “10 Best Beaches for Families” in 2013. It gives you access to concessions, fresh water, shade, and fun play areas for family as well.
Before visiting the beaches, take note of the local leash laws. To ensure you and your pets have safe fun, local ordinances require your pets to stay on a leash (6 feet or less in length) while roaming the beaches. These rules keep your pup safe from dangerous surf conditions and allow other visitors to enjoy the beaches too.
