    This beach was so nice and convenient for our trip with the fur babies!! Take a walk along the cliffs and then hit the beach, just a few steps down the cliff; stairs are provided. My dogs loved the long stretch of beach and the views were great, right by the lighthouse. The only thing you have to watch out for is the dip in the sand by the water. Your dog really can’t play fetch into the ocean, but they are able to at least go in mid-dog body. Have fun!
