    Great dog beach

    Our dog (& family) loved this beach. it was clean, people & dogs were friendly and although getting the weekend pass plus paying to park was a little more $ than I would like to spend it was a great experience. My only complaint is that it’s only available Friday-Sunday.

    You cant bring your dog here unless you are a local resident and you have to go to city hall to get said permit plus $10 per dog per trip plus paid parking, minimal space to let your dog go no life guard people complain if your dog is off leash its not a fun place

    It's great, but you are required to be a Boca Resident

    I like this beach a lot but I have two problems with it: 1. In order to bring your dog to the beach you have to be a Boca Raton resident and go to a city official building, as well as pay a fee to get a permit. 2. Once you have the permit and you feel special, you can ONLY go to the Spanish River dog beach during certain times (weekends 7am-Pam and 3pm-sunset). I'd rather make the trek up to Jupiter dog beach where it's miles and miles of beautiful, non-confined beaches for many dogs from all over.

    Thanks City of Boca!

    My dog loves to run up and down the beach barking at the waves & wading in the water. It truly tires her out! A lot of fun & laughs watching dogs play here & enjoying the surf! Responsible owners too.
