While everyone crawls down the highway to the beach on super hot days (Melbourne has had quite a few this summer!), this just isn't possible for pug lovers as pugs can overheat very quickly. Wanting to include our dogs in our day trip to the beach, we waited for the forecast to be more moderate ie showers!! to make our way down the Great Ocean Road.
Heading to Point Addis, Gypsy & Poppet enjoyed a short trail along the coastline and to the lookout. We were lucky enough to then meet the local park rangers, who pointed us in the right direction for the entry to Addiscot Beach ~ a dog-friendly beach all year round ;-)
This beach is magical for dogs. While pugs can't swim, Gypsy & Poppet love the water and enjoyed running in shallow water to cool off and have fun. Addiscot is a quiet cove tucked in between the ever-popular Bells Beach & Anglesea. We were lucky enough to visit on a weekday and wonder how busy it gets on the weekends? Only one way to find out! We will have to return ;-)
