Pawleys Island: Are dogs allowed on the beach?

This is an age old, commonly asked question.

We love the beach, our four-legged friends do too! There are leash laws in effect during certain times of the year. All dogs must be on a leash from May 1 – Sept 30 (8 am – 8 pm). Please be courteous to others and pick up after your pets. Doggie bags are provided at the public beach accesses. We want everyone, people and pets alike to enjoy the beach. My three dogs love to play in the surf and chasing the seagulls.

It’s important to remember to bring your pet water while you’re in the sun, too! The sand can get very hot and could burn their pads if you decide to visit mid-day during the summer. Just be aware!

Send us a picture of your dog enjoying Pawleys Island to and we would love to showcase your photos.

Have fun!
