    Great first Beach Experience

    Brought our two Doberman Pinscher puppies to this park for their first beach experience. They loved everything from the digging in the sand, running along the shore and being in the water. You must be mindful of the things that wash up on shore and make sure your Fido don’t eat them. We saw a jellyfish which was kind of cool bit definitely not for the dogs mid day snack. Definitely will be going back to visit.

    Huge Beach!

    Our dog loved it here! Lost a bone since it was crazy crowded and parking was difficult to find near the off leash area.

    Beach fun

    It's a beach, and beaches are fun! Lots of locals bring their dogs here, and it's fine to let them off leash. The only thing I would caution is that this beach tends to have a lot of stuff wash up that your dog might try to eat, typically more in the way of seaweed and the like than jellyfish (though we have seen those, too, so be careful!).
