The water is crystal clear and blue! Lots of dogs of all sizes and shapes. Everyone got along. My dog kept stealing another dog's ball, but it was all good!

I was so excited to take my baby here. It really makes me sad that this beach wasn't more enjoyable. I hated walking on somewhat slimy sand as I made my way back to the beach. Once we made our way out to a nice...More

We visited the highly reviewed Dog Park in Bonita Springs in late July with our dog and we’re looking forward to a fun afternoon. We drove from our hotel in Bonita Springs and parked in the Sandy parking lot area. There were no signs identifying...More

I visited here in the summer. It was fairly crowded, but contrary to some other reviews, I found the owners responsible and nice. Beach was clean, and poop was not evident. Boats moor off shore and there is a sandbar to sit on with your...More

Nice stretch of beach. Especially interesting during high tide as the walk from the parking area to the beach is flooded (clear, clean, ankle deep water with a few fish) make it especially interesting for kids of all ages and large dogs. Small dogs may...More

Good place to bring your pups to play and cool down in water. It's a bit of a walk in murky and muddy puddles, but the dogs don't seem to mind. There is an area to hose them off before you leave, too.

There aren’t many places is southwest Florida where your dog or dogs can enjoy the beach with their master. Most everyone cleans up after their dogs. Dogs can run and play for hours. Bring fresh water for your dogs.

Close to Bonita Springs and our hotel (La Quinta), we took our daughter's schnauzer to an adventure. A short walk through the high tide around to the beach and then voila! dogs are free and jumping and swimming in the nice 1-2 feet shallow gulf...More
