Your guide to Mersea Island

Is my dog allowed on the beaches at Mersea Island?

Is my dog allowed on the beaches at Mersea Island?

We frequently are asked about the rules regarding dogs on Mersea beaches and we have a definitive answr for you right here!

West Mersea Town Council say that Mersea beach works on a "Live and Let Live" basis and the beach is used by thousands of people for many leisure activities - sometimes these activities overlap causing safety hazards and frustration so please be aware of other beach and water users and respect their right to safety.

Advice for dog owners using the beaches is to use a poop scoop to clear up after your dog and please leave the waste in the dog bins provided. West Mersea Town Council would prefer you to keep your dogs on a lead whilst using the beach during the busy summer season.

The same rules apply for the beach at East Mersea also.
