Dogs beach

Zwemmen met de hond op het HondenstrandWalking off leash, digging, running, playing and of course swimming. The Dog beach is the place at the ERKEMEDERSTRAND where your dog can play all day long. The dog beach is the middle part of the 3 kilometre long beach and is about 1,5 kilometres long. A beautiful terrain with long pieces of beach, grass and bushes. An ideal day for dog and owner!

Are you tired from a nice walk with your dog and do you want to treat yourself? You can find Beachpaviljon De Jutter at the terrain, where you can enjoy a nice deserved beverage. A dogs bar with water bowls and fresh water for your dog and a diversity on biscuits. We will not forget you as owner. We have an extended menu cart for you, from just a quick snack and beverages till a complete diner.

So... are dogs allowed on the ERKEMEDERSTRAND? Yes! Walking with your dog is never been more fun! And do you have a dog that is all dirty from playing? Than you can easily wash them at the special dog showers located at the camping.

From April till September are there toilets along the route for all guests of the Dog beach

Different entrances and beaches

We have a beach of 3 kilometres long, that is divided in 3 parts. Every part is accessible through a separate barrier. The central entrance is the one from the Dogs beach. This is the best one to park for a nice relaxing walk with your dog.

Good to know which entrance is the best.

Head entrance
Through the head entrance you will come at the Jutterstrand, there are unfortunately no dogs allowed. You will find our restaurant/beach pavilion De Jutter here (where dogs are allowed)

After that you will find the Hillstrand and the Rietstrand, dogs are allowed to be on leash here.

Dog beach
Here you are at the beginning of the Dogs beach. This is the centre part of the beach and 1,5 kilometres long. Dogs are allowed whole year long and can walk off leash. Also in the summer months July and August.

Events beach
This is the rear part of the beach. When you turn left you will come at the events beach. Dogs are not allowed here, so if you dong love dogs you can enjoy a nice quiet walk here as long as there are no events. If you turn right you will get at the end of the Dogs beach.

Below you’ll find a map of the complete beach and entrances, if you want to zoom or print you can find the map in the menu.
