Friendly Dog beach
Ally in Orlando/New York
Amazing beach, clean, very dog friendly. I asolutely loved it. I live about 1hr 40 min away and the drive is well worth it!
Katie in Fort Pierce
Being new in town and only living about 10 minutes away I decided to bring my dog somewhere fun and this came up. Upon getting into my car, I put the address in my navigation system and ended up walking a creepy path and arriving on a nude beach lol I took my phone out and realized I was 800 feet away. However, once arriving at the right place, I was amazed how nice it was! There were about 6 dogs there and the owners and dogs were super friendly! Highly recommended!
Great dog beach!
Suzanne in Orlando
We live in Orlando and it took us about 1.45 to get here. Well worth the travel time. We used to go to the DeSoto off leash beach in St. Pete, which is about the same travel time, just on the opposite coast. We much preferred this one. First of all, it's easy to get to. The beach is only steps from the parking area. At DeSoto, you have a long walk to get to the beach from the parking area. The beach is GORGEOUS! Crystal clear blue water and soft white sand. Unlike other dog beaches I have been too, we are not regulated to a tiny section. The strip is long and perfect for running puppies. The beach wasn't crowded at all. Everyone had more than enough space. There was a bathroom plus a wash station for the dogs. This was my only complaint. While it's a nice amenity, the dog washing station was overrun with flying bugs that I think had stingers. We skipped the wash. Hopefully maintenance will come out there soon. We read lots of comments that Google Maps was off. The maps must have been updated because we had no issues finding the beach. All in all, the best dog beach we have been to in Florida.
best dog-friendly beach!
Rebecca in Jensen Beach, FL
While most beaches allow dogs (tolerate dogs), Walton Rocks is dog friendly! Huge difference. My lab loves it so we go about once a week. There is a hose by the shower house to rinse you and your pooch off after playing or fill up water bowls, but the bees like to hang out there too! Love the beach, we'll keep coming back :).
A Barking Great Time
Amye in Newton Falls, Ohio
My little buddies first visit to a beach and it was a great time had by all. We opted for the leash free visit and he made so many friends. It was awesome to see all of the dogs running and playing together. The area was clean and they have a rinse area for pups and people too. It wasn't the Ritz but it got the job done. People cleaned up after their pets and shared water bowls and toys. The humans played as hard as the pups!
this is dog heaven!
J Haulotte in jacksonville, fl
Not only have fun in this offleash beach but the water is just beautiful is clear that you can see your feet and you pup's paws
Dog Beach!! It's wonderful.
Brooke Horne in Jensen Beach
How great is it that you can spend the day with your wonderful dog at a beautiful beach. Baggie station, clean toilets. Perfect.
Best Dog Beach Ever!
Jenna in Port St. Lucie
This dog beach was amazing! I really love how much fun my dog had with the other dogs. The water was pretty and clean, yet my dog wasn't to into it. The beach itself was very clean, no trash, and I only saw one doggy turd. I had never let my dog off her leash at a place like this but I felt really comfortable, and I took her leash off. She had so much fun there! I'm going to FOR SURE come again! I recommend if you love dogs and don't mind the showers being a little low pressured. This was a day well spent at the beach! :D
Doggy friends everywhere!
Jennifer in Port Saint Lucie
We went for the first time with our Rat Terrier. Jake has never been to the beach nor has he had the experience of seeing and playing with other dogs. He was so happy! This beach was easy access and had a lot of friendly people too. The beach tapered very gently to the ocean shore. There was lots of sand for the dogs to run and play. The water was clean and had only a little seaweed. Bring an umbrella and lots of water. They need shade and water just like us. We had a fantastic time.
Watch for bugs!
Tanya Finch in Centreville, VA
We took our three boxers there and had a great time! If you're going southbound, it is right after the power plant (thanks to the other user for typing that). We hosed our dogs off and sat under the covered picnic area to be swarmed by mosquitos. LOTS of mosquitos. When you're done at the beach, hose off and pack up (or bring bug spray).
So Doggone Fun
Tasha in Sebring, Fl
We have been here several times. It's around a 2 hour drive for us but worth it. Sure the bathrooms aren't fancy but who really cares, we're there to be on the beach not in the bathroom. The kids love splashing in the waves and playing in the sand. The whole family enjoys it and having the dogs (who are part of our family) with us makes it much better. There have been a few irresponsible dog owners show up, but irresponsible people turn up everywhere. A 5 bone dog beach for sure!
Jeremy in Orlando
We have been to many of the dog beaches in Florida and anytime out with the pooches is a good time but Walton Rocks is especially fun for them because its off leash. They have the freedom to swim and chase birds without the restraint of a leash. The map is being fixed by google to show where it actually is (first left after the nuclear power plant) Not a super busy beach with a few dogs here and there mostly just keeping to themselves. Great place to set up a tent and make a day of it. We drive from Orlando (little less than 2 hours down the turnpike) spend the day stop for a bite to eat in Ft. Pierce on the way back and then back up the turnpike home. Great beach for dogs, shells, and swimming. Cant wait to get back will post pictures soon.
A Great Day With My Dog
Mark From Delray Beach in Delray Beach, Fl
Yes, maybe the showers and bathroom are rustic. It took an hour and a half for me to get there. A day at the beach with my dog, off leach, was well worth it. Spent hours running up and down the beach and playing with the dogs in the surf. My dog didn't complain once about the bathrooms. Remember that your doing this also for your dog. There aren't many places to let your dog loose. to just be a dog. Put up with it, their worth it.
Ashley in Corbin, KY
I went to the dog beach today its toward the end of May. Apparently it is love bug season and kind of ruined the experience a little because they were swarms of them everywhere. The beach itself however was a very good experience. The dogs that were off leash were very well behaved, the beach was very clean and the water was a clear blue. I loved watching the other dogs play and my little dog loved digging holes in the sand and playing in the water and fetching sea shells. I kept her on leash because I do not quit trust her off leash yet but it is nice knowing that I had the option. I would definetly take her back and I really enjoyed the pet-friendly area on my vacation.
Not on map.
Thomas in Mount Clemens, MI
We followed the map directions and ended up at the Seabreeze restaurant which is supposed to be across from the park. It isn't. The park is actually about another nine miles down the road. The entrance is just past the power plant. The park was wonderful and our boy had a wonderful time. The showers were working fine, but I wish they afforded some privacy. All in all wehad a wonderful time.
Tammy Macdonald in West Melbourne
We took our two great danes and our lab mix for their very first experience with the ocean. They had a blast! In the surf and on the sand! There were many other dogs, but enough room for everyone without having to mingle. This was a VERY large area for the dogs and we were amazed at how we did NOT see dog poo on the beach, but we did see lots of human trash which was a big disappointment. We are planning on returning tomorrow and will tell others about this beach. Thanks Fort Pierce for this dog access beach!
Best Dog Beach so far
Karla in Orlando, FL
My husband & I have 5 dogs. We have been to various dog beaches in FL and this by far has been the best one. It was pretty empty which we loved & there is plenty of room for the dogs to run. They had bathrooms & a covered picnic table. We had a blast and will be going here a lot more often.
Just to have an Off - Leach Area
Edna in Jensen Beach
Some new repairs have been made since I was here. I've met nice people with pets. But one of the re-tired volunteer people driving an official security car howled out his window to me, that my dogs should be on an leach! The county workers, eating lunch there, said he was wrong it was an off-leach pet area. I reported what had happen to the sheriff office. They said the volunteer were not suppose to say anything to anyone, only report things wrong that they see. I was just there Jan. 2010, pets were playing free of a leash.
Susan Taylor in Sebring
I have taken both my dogs to this beach and it is a great area, the beach is tucked away from the road and you drive though a little wooded area and come upon a clearing which leads to the beach, there are restrooms, showers, picnic tables and benches, also special areas for poop bags and disposal. This park allows off leach dogs and is real nice and well worth the visit. I would visit more often if I did not live so far away but it is well worth the trip.
worth the drive...
Cooper in Lake Wales, FL
...but not the best ever experience. We were having a great time doing the long walk on the beach thing (because you can here which is what makes this beach so awesome!) when a large dog bullied my dog and the owners didn't bother to lease their dog after the incident. Other than that, the other dogs were great and there was lots of room. Plenty of parking.
Nice beach...by a nuclear power plant
Jana in Orlando
We were excited to go to Walton Rocks dog beach until we learned that it's not even a mile from the St. Lucie nuclear power plant. The beach looked nice and dogs were having a good time but the proximity of the power plant just spoiled the trip for us. We went down south to Jupiter beach instead. Their long dog beach is great too and no power plants nearby.
Donna in Vero Beach
After finding this beach online and looking at pics,I was expecting a Fantastic place,,,Very dispointed that as you drive in there is only one covered pavillion with a mosquito problem,old shower that has no water pressure and is constantly running,,when you drive down to the end there are OLD VERY worn out picnic tables and another covered pavillion that county workers sat at the whole 2 hours we visited beach!.Its nice they allow dogs but could use a little more TLC.
