The sun umbrella are up, the beach loungers full and the water is full of day trippers splashing about.All of which raises the question as to why there are not many more beaches like this one in what is a dog-loving country.A 30-minute drive from Rome, BauBeach Maccarese covers 7,000 square meters of ocean front, a big enough space to welcome more than 100 dogs, and their owners, at a time.The happy atmosphere is maintained by screening at the entrance, where new members are given a quick once-over by a member of the BauBeach team before being allowed off the leash, a process a bit like being eyed up by a bouncer at a nightclub.Once in, dogs must be let off their leads and allowed to socialize.
