I love that this is an off-leash dog beach. My dog was so happy. He swam and played with fellow dogs. There's fresh water available to wash off dirt once you and your pups are ready to leave. If you don't want to bring your dogs to the water, there's also a small park where dogs can run around and... More

This is a great dog beach. Certainly the best one in the county. It is two distinct beaches with a shady park near the road w water, hoses, picnic tables and mutt mitts! A short walk takes you to the beach which is about 500 feet long and nice and wide. The owners are terrific and there are almost no... More

Dog beach is usually fun. It can get problematic if there is a inconsiderate owner in the area. Usually there is fun for all. The entrance is fenced and there is a separate small dog area. Water is available as well as a rinsing area for the dogs. Pick-up bags are provided. Whats not to like? Limited parking. Go and... More

Believe this is the only dog beach in the state which is a real shame. it is great to have a nice spot to be able to take dogs and let them run in the sand or swim in the Gulf. One suggested improvement is for the city to increase the parking area for the dog park. the 20 or... More

This beach is great! Our dog had a great time. Brought our paddle board and saw dolphins everywhere! Drawback is people who don't pick up after their dogs! Ugh!

Small park on the way to the nice trail to the dog beach. Great place to wash off after running on the sand and swimming in the Gulf!

Great spot to swim with your best buddy. Easy to find and lots of like minded dog owners. Too bad there aren't more like it.

We have a lab mix and a bichon, both friendly and well-behaved. We went to the dog park without either of them to check it out. I loved the dog washing stations in the fenced area. After spending a short time on the beach, we decided that it was not a place we could take our dogs. There were just... More

Great place to take your dogs so they can enjoy the beach and the water. All sizes are enjoying the beach. However, some owners don't keep up with their animals and confrontations can occur. Nice place for both dogs and people to meet.
