Do not go during High Tide the beach disappears. Great to boat to! Would only recommend bringing your dog here if they are friendly of course!

Great place to take the dog but the address listed here is wrong. It is one beach south of the address given here. We will be back.

One of the rarest finds for dog lovers of all kinds. The beach area is easy to access of of Estero Blvd just south of Lovers Key State Park. Here is where the pets roam and play freely with each other. Chasing balls on the sand, fetching balls from the water and just having the freedom to do what dogs... More

Edith loved the dog park. She was so happy to play with all the dogs in the ocean. We had a great time!! I highly recommend this place for little dogs but make sure you go during low tide! Check out our photos on Instagram editharoundtown!!

Out skirts of town off a sand road, makes it hard to find, parking can be a nightmare if you go on the weekends. I the dogs can run free---no leash is required, however, with dogs of all shapes, sizes, you'd be safe to keep your dog on a leash especially since all breeds are allowed. Dogs can run in... More

Beautiful spot. Tide was high maybe because there wasn't a lot of sand, you had to walk through some water to get to a spot on the beach. Bathroom facilities would've been nice, but otherwise it was a nice place to stop and let the dog run and swim. No problem with other dogs on the beach, dogs and owners... More

Although I am not into dogs, this is a fun place with excellent wading, snorkeling and - believe it or not - water clarity. The views of the parks and pass to the Gulf make for scenic beach environment. And since the dogs are free to themselves, they are very well behaved. People are friendly, too, whether you have a...

I've been here many times with my dog (smaller dog, kinda shy), and whenever there was some beach to enjoy, it was wonderful! CHECK THE TIDES, because at high tide, the beach all but disappears! On a good day, there are plenty of dogs of various sizes, swimming, running around, and playing with each other. Owners swim or relax in... More

Fort Myers Beach is one of the best dog friendly towns. This beach is great you can let your dog off the lease and it is like a bay there is no way for them to run off.

This is the 10th Dog Beach I have visited over the years. It's for dog owners and its free. The best time to visit is an hour before low tide. The water is shallow for a long way out and the sand bars are exposed. They have a doggie shower, a portable toilet. And they are busy with lots of... More
