Holly Beach is pet-friendly. Dogs are welcome to join their owners on a beach that is fondly known by locals as the Cajun Riviera. The beach is located just thirty miles away from the Texas border. Dogs must be leashed when they are on the sand. The beach is often frequented by people crabbing and sunbathing. The beach is quiet and is one of Louisiana’s hidden gems, where you and your pooch might get a big stretch of sand all for yourselves.
