“Bow Wow! Dogs Allowed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Not much more to add from what the others have written. Great space, beautiful ocean, friendly people and well behaved dogs. Thank you, St. Lucie County.
Tip: It isn’t called Walton Rocks Beach for nothing. Take care at low tide for the buried limestone dotted along the sea floor. I found this in the area of beach at the furthest parking area. Not bothersome once you know where they are but I found out about them the hard way, sort of speak.

“This beach has gone to the dogs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This beach has gone to the dogs! This off-leash dog park was established on 24 acres of beach property so canines can romp in the sand and surf.

Located on A1A, south of the St. Lucie Power Plant, 4 miles north of the Jensen Beach Causeway on Hutchinson Island. This is a nice, untouched beach with no life guards, the southern most beach in St. Lucie County. Offers bathrooms and showers, free parking, good fishing, covered picnic tables and restrooms.

It does not require leashes and there is a maximum three dogs per person allowed. Also, guardians are required to pick up after their dogs and, even though leashes are not required, dogs must be kept under control at all times.

We have been here several times. Sure the bathrooms aren't fancy but who really cares, we're there to be on the beach not in the bathroom. The kids love splashing in the waves and playing in the sand. The whole family enjoys it and having the dogs (who are part of our family) with us makes it much better.

We have been to many of the dog beaches in Florida and anytime out with the pooches is a good time but Walton Rocks is especially fun for them because its off leash. They have the freedom to swim and chase birds without the restraint of a leash. Not a super busy beach with a few dogs here and there mostly just keeping to themselves. Great place to set up a tent and make a day of it.

The beach itself however was a very good experience. The dogs that were off leash were very well behaved, the beach was very clean and the water was a clear blue. I loved watching the other dogs play and my little dogs loved digging holes in the sand.
My dogs avoid getting close to the water.

“Great dog beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Spent the day at the beach with our yellow lab, the beach was clean and lots of room for pups to run. Was not crowded and we were ther in the summer on a Saturday . Will defiantly be back when we are in the area.

“Dog paradise found!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We were on vacation with our dogs and wanted to take them to the beach. This is the perfect beach for the dogs. It is isolated from other beaches and has a wide beach area for the dogs to run and swim. The water is not rough because of rocks that break them up. Our dogs had a great, safe day. We wish we lived close enough to come all the time.
