    Great off-season beach!

    My Pit mix boy and I had an amazing time in February. Mostly locals that time of year, but we had great weather to enjoy long walks to the Kindred Spirit mailbox and down to the jetty into SC!

    Our 11 year old Golden/Rotti mix LOVED this beach. It was her first time and she loved it. There are public bathrooms that are convenient, a doggie poop bag station (before you enter the beach) in case you forgot! Parking is relatively painless. If you get there early enough to snag a close spot!

    Would say this beach is old dog accessible because there are no stairs to access the beach, only ramps! They have a family/gender neutral public bathroom big enough for your dog as well if you are alone with your dog so you cannot leave them unattended. If your dog got particularly muddy there are outdoor showers to rinse their paws, etc.

    Very good place to spend the day with your dog. Remember to pack water and snacks!

    awesome beach

    Great walking beach for dogs and puppies. Very few shells and not very crowded. Wide enough to play frisbee or ball.
