Dog Walking on Camber Sands Beach – For a Pet Friendly Holiday or Weekend


Why not benefit from your summer holiday or a protracted weekend break and get yourself and your “best friend” all the way down to Camber Sands.

It is vitally dog friendly and with loads of great pubs and accommodation in the world its an awesome technique to recharge the batteries.

The preferred area to walk your pet is on Camber sands is to the West of the beach and one of the best place to park is as you arrive into Camber from the Rye and Rye Golf Course end.

If you will have a “Sat-Nav” entering the post code TN31 7RB will get you to the automobile park that best serves the dog walking zones/areas.

The present automobile parking rates (2012) on the District Council automobile parks are as follows: 8:30-18:00 –

£1.50 / hour

£4.00 / 2 hours

£7.00 / 4 hours

£9.00 / 6 hours

£11.00 / 8 hours

£13.00 / maximum

Automobile park stays open till 8pm… but is then locked… you is not going to get out!

With loads of dog bins and toilets the facilities are nearly price the associated fee… and remember PLEASE use the bins and Please pick your dogs deposits up!

In the summertime, on a very sunny weekend, expect some queuing to get into Camber as long queues construct up as cars wait to enter the important automobile parks near the beach. The busiest times are from around 10:00… in the event you arrive before then it’s best to not have too many issues.

In the event you are travelling to Camber in the summertime (ending September), Rother Council introduced dog zones on the beach where you might be allowed to walk your dog. When the tide is out, these areas stretch for miles and even with a full tide there’s loads of room because the sand dunes go inland not less than 500 yards in parts and the shoreline stretches West for not less than a mile.

When the ‘dog zone’ instructions were introduced all dogs needed to be on a lead. This was policed aggressively (for about six weeks) by dog wardens (or should I say – mostly summer vacating college students with spots). Nonetheless, this now seems to have been relaxed and so long as walkers are sensible and within the designated zones then it’s best to not be bothered.

The direction you’ll mechanically take will probably be West and if the tide is in why not walk to the top of the beach (Rye Harbour entry), turn right along the river towards the Harbour Masters office. You may then make your way back to the automobile park along the legal walkway through Rye Golf Course. The dog bins are limited on this area so take plenty of luggage with you!

The round trip is about 4 miles in total… be careful for the golf balls and keep your dog on a lead!

Together with great dog walks Camber, Rye and Rye Bay has rather more to supply than the wonderful sandy beach and we actually would recommend taking an extended break and visit the historical town of Rye, or Rye Harbour where there’s the terrific Rye Harbour Nature Reserve with miles of tarmac and more dog walking opportunities. The Nature Reserve also has loads of dog bins.

In the event you are after a room for the night, there are many PET FRIENDLY hotels in the world that can let you benefit from your visit… so what are you waiting for… grab the leads and get all the way down to Camber Sands and the Rye Bay area!
