The only dog beach around the Fort Myers area that I am aware of. Parking available. The beach is a short walk from the road. There are lots of dogs at times, all sizes. We have never had a problem but my dog is not aggressive and rather would hang with us rather than other dogs. If you have a... More

This is a great place to take your dog and let it play in the water with other dogs! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because there were pit bulls there that attacked other dogs. This beach should not allow aggressive dogs!!!

A nice beach, very nice actually, you can take your best furry friend to. Plenty of dogs hanging out there with their humans. All well behaved, some on leashes, some off but never a problem. There is a poop bag dispenser on the trail to the beach in case you forget yours. Bring a picnic lunch and it can be... More

If you love to walk the beach & with your dog, you'll love FMB. The island has made sure that there are dog waste bags & garbage facilities for your pet. 99+% of dog owners on the beach are respectful of cleaning up after their pets. This is so important given that families play in the sand! Lastly please make... More

We visited the dog beach while on vacation at Ft. Myers. We didn't have a dog with us but it was still a blast! It's beautiful and the people are friendly and there was just about every breed of dogs running around! We even saw dolphins swimming nearby. Very fun place and easy to get to.

I never get tired of watching all the dogs run and chase each other. Whether you have a puppy or a senior dog they will find a friend. Have rarely seen any issues there with dogs miss behaving. Owners misbehaving is an occasional situation but there is a good group that make this work!! Bravo

Compared to some other dog-friendly beaches we've been to, this is very nice. The dogs are off-leash so can roam on the beach or in the water. After parking, follow the sometimes flooded trail to the beach. You arrive at a very, very small beach. Go right around the mangroves and you will find the actual dog beach. Bring water... More

One of the few beaches in the Naples area that allows dogs to roam leash free. Do not bring your dog here if they are not socialized around other dogs because people go there for the freedom of their pets. Parking is ok then you walk in to the actual beach. The path can be water logged & have dead... More
