It's a great beach but is closed to dogs between May and Oct. No many sunbathers and any dog mess is easily cleaned up. Comevwinter the dogs are free to roam. Great beach however but watch the pub there. High prices.

We have been coming to Guernsey regularly for over 20 years and Pembroke is by far our favourite beach. Beautiful sand, interesting rock pools to search, very nice Beach cafe and good kiosks. Will be heading there again next year.
