A Kent beach has been named as one of the UK's most dog-friendly.
Kingsgate Bay in Broadstairs is one of six beaches across the country given the title.
With summer in full swing and a heatwave on the horizon, it is no wonder people are flocking to the beach, with their furry friends by their side.
Dog-friendly holiday lettings company, Canine Cottages, has researched the six best dog-friendly beaches in the UK.
It says Kingsgate Bay, which neighbours Joss Bay and Botany Bay, has "a rich history and interesting sea caves to explore with your dog".
The sandy beach is said to be perfect for adventures – and one pooches can roam all-year round.
However, it’s advisable to check the tides and the currents in the area before travelling, to avoid getting caught out by the waves.
Other beaches that made the list include Rhossili Bay Beach in Swansea, Luskentyre on the Isle of Harris, Porthmeor Beach in Cornwall, Holkham in Norfolk and Alnmouth in Northumberland.
If you are travelling to the beach with your pup, here are some top tips to bear in mind:
Shannon Keary, digital PR manager at Canine Cottages, said: “Dog-friendly beaches are important to maintain our dogs’ wellbeing.
"Our pooches should be able to roam and explore, and beaches are the perfect place for them to have tonnes of fun and explore new sights and smells.
"We wanted to collate the best beaches to help you find the best spots for you and your pooch for your next staycation or day trip!”
