Rome’'s dog-friendly beach returns

16th anniversary of Baubeach.

Rome’s beach designated exclusively for dogs and their owners reopens on 1 May and this year celebrates its 16th anniversary.

The 7,000-sqm stretch of sand known as Baubeach is located near Fiumicino airport in the Maccarese area west of the city and can be reached from Via Praia a Mare.

Dogs can play and run around freely and drinking water is provided, while owners are offered refreshment areas serving health foods and workshops in canine first-aid. Dogs can even accompany their owners to yoga and pilates classes on the beach.


A few simple rules apply: only non-aggressive dogs are welcome and generally are not required to be kept on a leash, puppies under three months and female dogs in heat are not permitted, dogs must possess their required identification microchip, and owners must present an up-to-date record of each dog’s vaccination history.

To keep the beach clean, refuse bags are available throughout the area. The entry fee, which includes a goody bag for your dog, is €4.
