    The best place for our pets

    This past weekend was the first time I had gone to a dog beach and I fell in love with it. It was so nice to see all those dogs running around having a blast with all their playmates!! We had a wonderful experience and would recommend it to everyone who has pets and want to enjoy and spend time with their four-legged friends! :)

    amazing ❤️

    I don't know why some people have given 1 bone rating, this dog beach is the BEST I have yet to see in the Miami area!!! I love this beach, sand is amazing and clean, water is clean and clear! I live way closer to key biscayne and it is disgusting over there. My dog absolutely adores this beach, and right after he gets a good old shower since there are hoses right before you enter the beach which is perfect!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! First time I went I went three weeks ends in a row!

    Dogs on the Dunes - Dog friendly beach

    Not sure why people keep on posting that this park doesn't allow dogs in the beach. Park description above is accurate, also if you want to double check the information be sure to follow the official miami dade county link or the comments posted by Bruce and Veronica. The experience was fantastic my dog loved it. All the dogs were Off-Leash in the dog beach friendly area. All pet owners were responsables picking up after their dogs and double checking their dogs while playing and swimming. Wonderful day at the beach paying only $2. My recommendation is to go first to the Bark Park so your dog socialize a little and drain some energy before getting to the beach area. That works for me (my dog) very well.

    No dogs on beach?

    I am really sad they do not allow dogs on the beach here. Miami and Fort Lauderdale need to open up more dog friendly beaches. I came to this place for the main reason of bringing my dog on the beach and it is not allowed. :((((

    Hollywood Beach

    Hollywood Beach has a Dog Beach with sand and ocean. I'm pretty sure it's every Sat & Sun from 4 to 7pm. I think it's $5 for Hollywood Residents and $10 if not.

    No Dogs On Beach?

    It is hard to believe that there is not one beach on Miami Beach that allows dogs. I guess I will have to just keep hiding him under a towel every time beach patrol rolls by. Sad for all dog lovers that love to spend quality time at the beach with their dog!

  • My dog loves this place lacy More than one year ago.
    My dog loves this place

    The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 bone rating is bc you can't bring dogs on the beach. It is very clean and my dog loves the space. Its never crowded and the dogs who visit are friendly.

    New dog park at Haulover Beach Park

    Dog can now run leash free at the new dog park at Haulover Beach Park. There's dog/people drinking fountains, pooper scooper stations and separate enclosed areas for small and large dogs to run leash free. What a great place for a dog park. You can't beat the beachside ambiance.
