The beach at Wells-next-the-sea is an awarding winning beach and popular among dog walkers.

Restrictions – Dogs are allowed on the beach at Wells all year round BUT there are some restrictions notably at the main entrance and near to the many beach huts that adorn the beach dogs are not allowed.

Dog owners are advised to enter the beach via the pinewood forested area to the left of the main entrance (this woodland area is itself a great place to walk).

    Always enjoy visiting this beach. Even though there may be hundreds of people enjoying it too, it doesn't seem crowded. Always take note of the tide times and keep close to the beach huts when it's running in. Plenty of parking, but sadly the narrow gauge railway has closed and now its too far for me and many other people to walk into town.

    A really interesting port to visit, quite a lot goes on with the fishermen coming and going with the tides rolling in and out. Sea bird's are always around searching for food, in and around the harbour, and there are quite a few interesting shops up their busy shopping area. Lot's of cafés and coffee/cake shop's, fish and chip shop's, ice cream parlours, book shop's, butchers, baker's, gift shop's, artist shop's and public houses. There are also sea trips available and, of course, private fishing boats for hire with a captain to look after you. A beautiful area that's well worth a visit.

    Lovely sandy beach where the left hand side of the beach is all dog friendly. If you are lucky, you may get to see seals chilling in the bank of the sand. At low tide, it is quite a walk to the sea but it is so lovely and clean that we've never minded. There are also lovely walks through the pine forest too and this links up with the coastal path. There are a lot of steps up from the car park but they are not overly steep.

    Been for a nice walk on the beach with the dogs today. Parked in the car park which took card payment and was £3.50 for two hours. To get to the dog friendly part of the beach don’t head towards the lifeboat station, instead go the opposite way to the west side of the car park and through a small wooded area, this then leads to the beach, up and then down some steps. Once at the beach turn left for the dog friendly area (well sign posted). We then walked for about an hour and ended up at Holkham beach (been here on a previous holiday) we then turned around and headed back. The beach is big and I can imagine in the summer, gets very busy, especially with all the beach huts available, but because of the size, I’m guessing a little walk from the crowded area and you could have a lovely quiet area. When we came (November) it was just people walking their dogs on the beach. The car park had a cafe (didn’t use so can’t comment) and free toilets which were nice and clean. A good dog friendly beach and worth a visit.

    A beautiful beach! We stopped here on a weekday afternoon at low tide and with our dog. Designated dog areas to the west of the car park, over a board walk and down onto the beach. What a great place to explore and for the dog to run on the vast sandy beach. Beach huts on stilts sit in front of the dunes. The wooded area makes for a natural shelter from the southerly winds. We will be back soon to walk to the lookout along the coastal path.
