IF you are a dog owner and fancy taking your pet out for a trip to the seaside and a run along the beach, you have to be aware that you can only do so on an approved beach in the Valencian Community.

16 such beaches have so far been allocated by local municipalities for canines to use during the summer with more in the pipeline.

Some parts of the region actively promote themselves as having a dog-friendly beach to attract tourists from Spain and further afield.

Remember- you could get fined if you walk your dog on an unapproved beach.
