Love that they are dog-friendly and did not see one doggie doo-doo left behind. Other beaches in Florida could really learn from this beach and become more dog-friendly.

What a great idea this community had! A dog beach, where our furry babies can swim and romp without issue. A bit of a challenge to reach during high tide, but really cute once you meandered the paths. I'd recommend water shoes for the humans....More

People do not pick up their dogs waste. It would be a great place if the dog owners would be responsible, but they are not.

It’s great to see all the dogs swimming and having fun but not all owners pick up after their dog and it can get disgusting. Across the bay to the south is an unotherized nude beach and no poop. Just sayng

We were missing our dogs so took a walk on the canine beach to get a bit of doggy atmosphere. It is clean, and it seemed that everyone was obeying the rules. The dogs were having fun splashing,swimming, fetching and some were playing together. There...More

Yes, most dogs are off leash, but surprisingly none were out of control. We had fun letting our dog splash and play.

Bring water shoes because when the tide comes in you’ll have to walk thru a bit of water to get to the beach. Dogs can go leach free. They love it. Shallow water. They poop and pee everywhere and no one cleans it up. Gross

Due to currents, not a great place to swim but certainly wading is fine. Read that this was the best place to shell but didn't find any. Very uncrowded and pleasant.
