    Insanely small area

    Nice beach but wayyyyy too small, it's like a 150ft stretch of beach, we were 50 feet out of the signed area because it was crowded and a beach-goer came and yelled at us that we were out of the section and needed to move. We had our dog off leash for a little bit (shes insanely well behaved, I've done some intense training, and she's super lazy so she was just laying beside us doing nothing at the time) and another beach-goer yelled. So the people suck, and it's stupid small. Not worth the traffic to get here. What's the point of a leashed dog beach, especially if the area is so small that they can't walk? The dogs can't do anything like that. Too bad Jensen beach is so far away, it's the best.
    So yeah, come here if you dont plan to walk along the beach (because it's too small and you can't leave the section apparently). If you want to sit and read, and have a bored, hot dog, then it's pretty scenery.

    Good beach for dogs

    The beach is pretty isolated from the rest of the island, so not too many people were there. You do have to keep your pup on a leash, but they can still run around and swim in the ocean. There is a person who patrols the beach, so make sure to have your dog’s rabies vaccination tag. One star taken away because it’s a small area for dogs, but otherwise a really good place for some fun in the sun.
