Our dogs had an absolute blast at this park. Our dogs are single minded: one wants to chase fish, the other chases the water frisbee. Most of the dogs were well socialized but their owners were not. There is dog crap everywhere and a lot of irresponsible owners. We make sure to carefully watch where our dogs poop and clean... More

it's like a postcard! Be Sure to go at high tide. 100 yd walk through underwater path to lagoon. Very popular spot. Worth the trip.

We reside near Dog Beach and often pass by with our boat. It is very clean with fantastic views of the Gulf. It is not uncommon to see Dolphins playing or an occasional Sting Ray jump clear out of the water. Fisherman abound in the entire area. A day spent here with your pet will be long remembered.

We love this beach, and so does our dog. This beach is a slice of heaven! Powdery sand and breathtaking scenery.

Great place for your furbuddies..They can run and get there exercise and you can look at the beautiful water. Please be responsible pet owners and pick up after your pets.

While it's great that you can let your dog run and play in the water it's gross. Most of the dog owner's never picked up after their dogs because they we not watching them or were too far away. I watched as dogs would defecate in the gulf and on beach any beach towels that were left unattended. Totally disgusting!

Great place to bring your dogs, let them swim, play and socialize. Low tide plenty of beach area, high tide no beach at all.

We visited the dog beach without our pup this time to scope it out for the future. Will definitely bring him here! Lots of people on land and in boats with pups playing in and out of the eater. The beach itself wasn't that wide so the pups will be in the water a lot but maybe that depends on... More
