DOG BEACHES

The first doggy beach in Andalucia; Playa de la Sal in Casares, at the western end of the Costa del Sol. In 2015 dog beaches nominated by town halls were La Sal en Casares, El Ejido en Mijas, El Castillo en Fuengirola, La Araña en Málaga, El Moral en Rincón de la Victoria, Playa de El Cable en Motril, la Playa de El Castillo de Mácenas en Mojácar.  In response the Junta de Andalucia decreed that town halls could not authorise dog beaches in the summer, this lead to some confusion.

In 2016 the following beaches, prepared by the town halls were authorised by the Junta de Andalucia as Dog Beaches:

Playa del Espigon, Huelva (Huelva)
Playa de Camposto, San Fernando, (Cadiz)
Playa Piedra Paloma, Casares, (Malaga) 
Playa Castillo, Fuengirola (Malaga)
Playa Arroyo Totalán, Rincon de la Victoria, (Malaga) 
Playa El Cable, Motril, (Granada) 
Playa de la RanaAdra (Almeria) 

In practice, thought tecnically illegal, many dog owners do walk dogs on beach when it is quiet in the early morning or the evenings or out of season.

Similarly horseriding is often enjoyed on quieter beaches (or in winter or evenings) on Costa de la Luz with local guides and is featured in DMO promotional material.
