    We traveled from VT to bring our boy to the ocean for the first time and this visit was well worth the travel. He is rescue who is reactive to attention from strangers and our day on the beach was nearly stress free! We had lots of space to play and everyone walking on the beach was respectfully keeping their dogs close. The only down side was that there is only one way in and we had to walk him carefully through a few small groups of people. We visited on June 4th and dogs are welcome all day long. Parking was $5 per hour.
    The beach is mostly sandy, but rocky in some places. Watch for broken shells and sharp stones if you're doggo will be running.

    Right across the inlet from Wells Beach and easy to get to. Poop bags in dispensers at entry to all dog beaches we visited. Off season (mid-Sept) was a perfect time to visit as restrictions are lifted and dogs are allowed at all hours and, particularly on the foggy and rainy days of our visit, the beachcombers were sparse. The beach is Very wide at all but highest tide and the sand is firm and fast. Drake's Island had some rocky areas along the waterline at low tide which the dogs were very interested in but also made it wiser to walk around. I would HIGHLY recommend a stroll along this beautiful beach and can't wait until we can return at some point in the future!
