These restrictions do not apply to guide dogs for the blind.

Dogs on leads

We also have some restrictions about dogs being kept on leads. You need to keep your dog on a lead on:

  • The entire promenade at Swansea Bay (from the River Tawe to the Knab Rock car park, Mumbles)
  • The promenades at Langland Bay and Rotherslade
  • The promenade at Caswell Bay

If you fail to keep your dog on a lead you could be issued with a fixed penalty notice.
