Brought our dog on our last day in Portland. Found tiny pieces of sea glass. The beach is really nothing spectacular, but it's a beach - and if that's what you're looking for; then you'll be happy.

Nice small beach walking distance (20 minutes) from where we stayed. We went there because we booked sunset kayak tour. I was there on 7/2 around 4.30 pm and were not too many people. You can bring your dog after 5 pm.
