    Very Disappointed

    Not much of a dog beach if they have to be on a leash.
    Big open field near the playground for the dogs to play but no fence. Field was full of sand burrs. Dogs immediately got them in their feet, Mom with kids complained because dogs were off leash close to the playground. We have a toy
    and poodle and a Yorkie Poo!

    Off Leash is ILLEGAL

    The person who took his dog for an off-leash run broke the law. We welcome dogs on the beaches here (except for the state parks) as long as they are leashed and you pick up after them. If you don’t follow the rules it’s a $150 fine.

    A Dog-Friendly Beach

    It is a reasonably clean beach. The greyhounds thought the sand was very sandy and the water was very wet... I explained to them that this was typical for a beach. We came mid-March, so it was not too crowded. Plenty of parking (for mid-March), but I bet it is inadequate for busy season.

    Great beach

    Took my 3 year old male pitbull here Feb 11-12 2017. He had a blast and this was his first time on a beach. Very dog friendly and when its not a lot of people there I took him off his leash and we ran for about a mile along the coast.

    fantastic park

    Me, my wife, and my 6 month old puppy have now been here 3 times and each time it is amazing! Soft sand, warm water, completely dog friendly, and so far not many people. Only rule is you have to clean up after them, also, there is a great dog park near by with a doggie pool. However, it's closed on Tuesdays.
