This is doggy gone wild heaven. Awesome beach to take your pet and let them be free to splash around. Wish we could have stayed longer, our dog had a blast. It's a "muddy" walk way to reach the beach, but it's free and so is parking. There​ is even a shower, to rinse off your pet before heading home.... More

Having recently moved to Bonita from Palm Beach Gardens, I have to say this "dog beach" (which is really move of just a cove) is nothing like Juno Beach in the East Coast. When the tide is in there was literally about 10 feet of beach to sit on. It was dirty and the walk to and from the car... More

The Dog house has some of the best food on the beach. This little stand has great burgers, sandwiches and yummy fries. Try the daily specials they are fantastic. There is only out door seating. The staff is friendly and you will love it.

I read some of the complaints about dog "poop." Give me a break. It's a dog beach where lots of dogs come to swim. Having said that, it's a wonderful place to take your dog for a fun swim. Even at high tide, just consider it a little adventure. I watched three guys throwing a frisbee back and forth and... More

Really... A beach dedicated to dogs!!! It is truly a dog's dream come true!!! Parking is free... Off leash dog park... Very friendly people and nice dogs when we visited! Even a dog wash area near the parking lot to wash off your dogs' paws before jumping into your car!

I have taken my boy to this beach 3 times and all 3 times, the beach was littered with dead fish and a beach not clean. The parking lot walk to the beach is always flooded so more dead fish. The beach itself is just ok and it's not a place I will take my dog again

On advice from a friend, we visited Dog Beach late in the afternoon to watch the sunset. It was beautiful!

We never actually made it to the dog beach. It was high tide and we would have had to walk through a quarter mile of standing water to get to the beach. Someone coming out said that there was little sand for the dogs to play on. Would probably be great for water dogs such as a lab that like... More

Stopped to look at this beach on a afternoon drive. Free parking & a short walk to the beach which didn't have much sand more a silty mud. Unfortunately between the car park & the beach was a large pool which you had to paddle through & some of the dogs we're peeing in it...not nice. All the people had... More
