    We loved it here so much we got married here!

    Great place to spend the morning or evening watching the sun rise and sun set! We are from Dc and actually drove up here to get married along with our dogs!

    Living my bougie doggie dream

    Stunning location, wide swaths of sand bar to run and play. Only allowed during off season (dog season). Not many trash cans, but miles of sand and sea. Hazel loved it. Ended the day with ice cream and a peek at TSwifts house.

    Lovely walk

    We visited in late April, although it was a chilly day it was a beautiful walk just under 4 miles to go out around the peninsula and the inlet and back through the beach. We kept our dog leash while we were in the conservation area, but did let her go when we got to the beach area and we were far away from the roped off sections. We saw a couple of other dog walkers and even visited with one. The only concern is there are some sections that are washed out when climbing over the back dunes. The dog was fine I was a little bit more cautious

    Beautiful beach hike

    Friendly people, gorgeous views, nice hike around the point. Doggie bag dispenser was empty so be sure to bring your own poopie bags.

    I Love It Here!

    such a relaxing place! I found this place about a month an a half ago and I’ve been coming at a least 1-2 times a week since! read some bad reviews on yelp because of a “long walk” to my consideration those people were just extremely lazy because it takes no more than 7 minutes to get from my car to exactly where I want to be on the beach. it’s a gorgeous spot! my pup and I love watching the sunset

    Things to know!

    If visiting in the summer, be aware that you must park a good ways from where the trail actually starts. You park in the lot for the shopping area in town and must walk along a good deal of pavement before getting to the hot sand. Too much hot for doggie feet. Also you walk behind private cabana areas and the locals are uppity and rude. One actually asked why I was there and then said that he wish they would close access to this. Sorry to invade on the exclusivity of your private cabana's parking area. Not visiting again.

    Beautiful Beach

    This place was stunning! It was such a great place for us to bring our dogs and they loved the ocean. However, when we left, we found close to 10 ticks between our 2 dogs and on us. It was pretty alarming how we just kept finding them on us. The beach does have warning signs though. But beware walking through any grassy parts, which is impossible to avoid to get to the beach. So just don’t bring your dog if they don’t have any tick treatments. Other than that, enjoy the beach !

    Beautiful walk!

    Took our dog here in October. Not a lot of people, was able to take her off leash. Really pretty!
