Go midweek to have fewer parking problems and less crowds. Maybe combine with a trip to AQWA and lunch at one of the may attractions. Does get crowded on weekends.

It is not actually a dog beach. Many people walk their dogs along the board walk on a lead, there is a coffee shop behind the yacht club that is dog friendly and provides water bowls etc.
