Dunwich Beach - Dog Friendly beach in Dunwich, SuffolkWith miles of beautiful beaches open to the public year round, Suffolk is a great place for a lazy walk along the coast with family.

First, the good news — from October through April, there are no dog restrictions in force in Suffolk so you can feel free to bring the family pet to any stretch of beach you like.
