Atlantic Beach and Dogs

We're headed to Atlantic Beach and are bringing our 14 lb mutt who LOVES to swim. I can't find much online in regard to good places to go with pets or rules of the beaches etc. We are staying at some condos which I understand have a private beach. Anyway, looking for feedback from people that have vacationed with their pooches!

I don't have a dog, but do vacation in Atlantic Beach. There are dogs on the beach and I think so long as your dog doesn't bother anyone or leave a mess, people don't mind. I see a lot of people walking their dogs in the morning or later at night, as the sand can get quite hot. We stay at Dunescape Villas in August. The sand in the afternoon is too hot to walk on without some sort of flipflop or sandel. Hope this helps. marie

Dogs are allowed along the beach, though pay attention directly by the AB circle where they are not during the summer months. Otherwise, dogs are permitted. They are by NC state law required to be restrained at all times and the beach patrol will caution you if your dog is running about. However, if you are not in a very populated area of the beach and you are throwing a ball, etc, and pick up after your pet, no one is going to bother you.

And don't forget: carry plastic bags to clean up after your pet.
