Pascià Glam Beach in Perelli, a hamlet of Piombino in the province of Livorno, is a popular choice for its 200 meters of white sand, set against the backdrop of the protected nature park of Sterpaia. Dogs and humans alike can dip in the water, or if you’d prefer to get your buddy good and tired before heading to the beach, make a morning out of winding through the nature park paths before stretching out on a lounge chair under one of the natural heather umbrellas with a Spritz from the bar (and plenty of water for your pup).
San Vicenzo has another 200 meter beach set aside just for the joy of your dog. The Dog Beach of San Vicenzo is a pup’s dream come true: no time constraints on swimming in the sea, room to roam (staying within the confines of the designated beach area), an ample supply of (non-sea) water to glug up when they get thirsty, and no limits on the number of friends to find. Dogs of all sizes and breeds are allowed; the “golden rule” is that aggressive behavior is not allowed, so take note if your furry friend tends to be on edge around other dogs.
