    The dogs love it

    My dogs love running up and down this beach. It's sometimes a bit of trouble getting the "runner" dog to come back, but it's still a lot of fun. We've even been here in the summer, but not during the day - more like 5:00 p. m. and later, and there are usually other dogs there then, too.

    Great beach

    Highly recommend nahant dog beach. Dogs and owners where all very friendly.The beach was kept clean and my two small dogs loved going. It was kind of hard to find the beach as the address brought us a little ways down the road from the actual beach.Finding parking nearby was a little difficult as well. I was disappointed that there wasn't a designated parking lot reserved for the dog beach. Over all the beach is great!

    Dogs welcome all year round!

    We went there last week (7-14-2014) and it was great! Our dog was so happy and we could swim with him! There are signs that says "for Nahant registered dogs only" but nobody bothered us. There were bags for droppings and a trash can, the beach was clean! The beach was a lot bigger at low tide. The only thing we forgot : bringing fresh water. Ususally our dog drink the water from the lake but the ocean water is salty!

    doggie beach shut down

    Hi Everyone, we love love love doggie beach in Nahant, there is a sign at the south end of doggie beach which states "No dogs beyond this point". The residents living in the homes are trying to shut doggie beach down because some visitors, local or not, allow their dogs beyond the posted sign. Please respect all rules, we want to keep doggie beach open. Thanks so much, Roze.

    Awesome!

    I was looking for a doggie beach to bring my dog during the hot days of summer and this is it! Great article, great suggestions! Before you go to the beach for the day you might want to stop at http://www.worldlypets.com for some doggie treats to bring with you or dog toys to use at the beach.

    Great place!

    I like this place because you can bring your dog to the beach here and the fact that it is only a few miles away from my home.

    Perfect

    The beach was amazing, dog owners were friendly. Parking not so bad. Could use a cross walk there. Over all happy with the beach. Shhhhhh no local dog licence like the sign said. Not an issue though. Can't wait to take the dogs back!

    Wow!

    This beach amazed me as I never knew a dog friendly beach was so close by! Our dogs made many friends, the water was clear, and the view of the city was spectacular!
    The reason I am only giving it 3 stars is because of the dog owners. I have never seen so much fecal matter in my life. No wonder why dogs aren't allowed anywhere when people don't act responsibly even when they are given a dog friendly space. Don't step in the seaweed....
    Nahant and the users of the beach need to clean this place up.

    Awesome Beach!

    Too good to be true, I think not. Beach was beautiful and spacious. Not crowded at all. Clean water. Gorgeous view of Boston. Parking was a bit rough as the main beach lot was full and the dog beach lot is for Nahant residents only. A fellow beach goer recommended finding a side street that posted no parking restrictions. Worth the drive. Will definitely make the trip again.

    Black Rock Beach is wonderful!

    We visited Black Rock Beach, aka Dog Beach today. The area was very clean and the other dog owners and dogs were wonderful. There is plenty of room to play a game of fetch, take a swim and lay out a towel. Parking only in the public lot for $3, all of the street parking requires a resident sticker. Definitely worth the trip!
