We went there once to check it out. Dogs have lots of fun running and playing with other dogs. Not a place to just sit and relax.

Has a clean port a potty for humans and bags for the dogs. Has a shower to rise off everyone. Lots of fun seeing all types of dogs. Check the tides. More difficult on high tide. Watch for dolphins swimming near by!
