New rules for dogs on Cape Town beaches

 The city of Cape Town has introduced new legislation banning dogs from some of its 72 beaches which it has divided into "dog-free" and "dog-friendly" zones.

Cape Town’s sport, recreation and amenities department is at present installing new signs on its beaches to outline the rules about dogs. If it is a dog-free beach, signs will point out the closest dog-friendly strand, while on other beaches dogs will be permitted provided they are kept on a leash.

The city has identified popular “key coastal recreation points” as dog-free zones, while nearby beaches have been designated dog-friendly areas, as have small parts of overall beach nodal areas.

Included in these smaller dog-friendly sections of beaches are the west of Gordon’s Bay main beach and sections of Sunrise, Blue Waters, Strandfontein, Clovelly, Fish Hoek, Glencairn, Mackerel, Long Beach (Simon’s town), Windmill, Fisherman’s, Long Beach (Kommetjie), the middle section of Hout Bay beach; Clifton First, Sunset (Sea Point), Mouille Point and Dolphin.
