    Great pet-friendly and family friendly beach!

    Free public parking or drive with 4x. Not a ton of other dogs, so fewer distractions. Leash red’s, but saw a few without. Large, flat, clean beach.

    Love this beach!

    This beach was perfect for us and our pup! Our pup is still getting comfortable with swimming so the large waves when we visited we not an issue. There is SO MUCH SPACE to dig, play & run! Almost all the dogs were on leashes and parking was easy. We did visited “off season” and on a cooler day. We will definitely be back to this beach!

    Great beach!

    We headed blindly to Crescent beach without knowing much about it except that its pet-friendly. We didn’t know you can drive on the beach, park your car and go for a swim with your dog. it was really chilly when we went so there was not much people. the beach is miles long and very large so there is plenty of space when its crowded. We loved it and will be back next time we are in St-Augustine! Except that it was too chilly and rough for our pup, he still enjoyed the beach running around.

    Dog beach????

    This is a people beach where dogs are grudgingly allowed- on leash only. There are beach patrol vehicles and other vehicles driving on the beach. If you want a true dog beach where your fur baby can swim, chase ball and frisbee and be off leash, don't go here.

    Perfect experience for all!

    My husband, myself, and our dog Sadie stayed in St. Augustine and this was the beach our hotel had access to. There were other dogs but thankfully they were all on leashes. During the week days it was not too busy but the weekend got crowded. even so, still a great time and everyone was nice and it was overall very enjoyable for everyone!

    Great Family Day

    Was able to drive right up on the beach which means unloading and loading the pups super easy! Great clean beach. Would love more water stations

    Beautiful Stop For Fur babies

    We have a full house of four dogs. ALL of them enjoyed this experience. The beach was clean and open. We went on a Thursday around 10am and Sunday around 12pm

    Fantastic Beach-super dog friendly

    Loved Loved Loved Crescent Beach with our fur baby! If you walk in its free-they recommend 4x4 if you want to drive on the beach for a nominal fee. The two ladies at the entrance were extremely friendly and provided treats and love to our girl before we started our beach exploration. Great wide beach, lots of places to pick up and throw away dog deposits, loved the view. Definitely go if in the area!

    My parents and I decided to go on a road trip in their RV for Christmas. Saint Augustine was our final destination, and boy are we glad we came here. Crescent Beach was so much more than we dared hope for. This isn’t a dog park where you’re furry companion is limited to a small space. The entire beach is dog friendly. Just make sure to keep them on a leash and clean up after them. We will definitely keep this place in mind for any future trips.

    Awesome Beach - Very Dog Friendly

    If you like to take your dog to the beach and also drive your 4-wheel drive vehicle on the beach, this is the place to go. Dogs play in the surf and chase Frisbees. Beach is very wide and the surf is great. There are also a lot of surfers at this beach. It is a well known place to surf, picnic, play beach sports, (ex: volley ball) There are restrooms and showers for the humans. There is even a place to wash your dog off. If you like the sun, surf, and beach you will love Crescent Beach.
