Places to go: Beaches

Wanting to bring your pets for a beach visit, but not knowing how? Sadly, dogs are not allowed on any of the beaches managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. That’s why PET-A-HOOD is going to introduce 7 beaches that are not managed by the government, so that all pet owners can cool off with their pets this summer! By the way, don’t forget to record their moments in the water and participate in the "Summer Olympic Video Competition" organized by PET-A-HOOD!


More information for "Summer Olympic Video Competition":
