    Walk on the beach

    We are staying in Carolina Beach with extended family for Spring Break. It is nice to be able to walk the beach with our dog in the mornings (before 9 am) or in the evenings (after 5 pm). It is early in the season, but there is plenty of space for us to wander and explore.

    1st Ocean Beach

    This was Ayame's 1st tril to the beach and she loved it. Everyone was nice and the beach was super clean (March). We stayed in a dog-friendly AirBnB nearby so we could walk to the beach anytime and let her get some energy out. Worked like a charm.

    Great beach after dinner

    We enjoyed walking the beach after dinner with Misty. She however did not like the fireworks on Saturday night at a pier south of Lifeguard Station 15, Hamlet entrance.

    Dog friendly beach

    Carolina Beach just out side of Freeman Park is a beautiful place to take your dog to swim and play. We spent the whole day. Everyone we met (2 and 4 legged) were so friendly. We will definitely go back!
