Near Lover's Key State Park, Dog Beach is a county park with few if any amenities but is a VERY nice place to take your dog (you can swim too). Park along the road and enjoy!

Nice beach, could use a nicer access path. The ditches through mangroves were scary and tricky to manoeuvre.

We didn't have our pups with us, just wanted to check it out. It was beautiful and well maintained. One of the locals suggested we check it out, and it was well worth it.

This is a great place to relax and let your dogs play! A lot of social interacting for your pup to just let loose and enjoy other pups

Bonita Bay area. We went there w/o a dog, based upon a local person's suggestion that we check it out. Really fun. Casual beach with dogs romping freely in the waves. Maybe wear shoes in case of sharp rocks or whatever in this shallow area. We went barefoot...wreckless rebels! Nice, calm, clean area. Don't go if you don't like canines.... More

I loved the dog beach when they opened it at first.Now it has become too popular and its now a little too small for the amount of big dogs .Its a great idea ,but I don't think the city thought it would be used as much.

Cool place to let your dogs run free but so many people don't pick up after their dogs that it smells so bad now. It is right on the beach and it ruins the area.

Beautiful beach with a lot of laughs if you happen to be a dog lover! Watching all the dogs play in the water is well worth the trip!

My 7 month doodle was attacked and bit in face by pitbull. Not the place to relax and watch your dog enjoy the water. Pitbull free roaming while owner sitting in beach chair letting his dog get aggressive with multiple dogs. When we questioned how safe and controlled his dog was he cut an attitude and tapped "yeah he is... More

This is especially good if you have a dog or dogs that don't get to interact with other dogs. We took our Lab who is 10 years old and he loved it. The other people are there to have fun with their pets also, so it`s all good. We did not see dog crap when we were there, everyone was... More
