    Awesome Location - Super Respectful Patrons!

    Just went here last weekend and it was beautiful! I had no idea such a wonderful dog friendly beach existed so close to my parents house. Everyone was super about keeping their dogs with them, and all the dogs were super well behaved. 10/10 recommend and will be hopefully visiting again!
