The beach area is set up for dogs and dog lovers! Plenty of space to let them romp in the warm water. Free parking is available and access is easy. You might want to check tides as high tide can make the access a little challenging in that you may have to wade to get to the sandy beach area.

Great food at the beach but again anything is good at the beach. Ox does have fantastic fish sandwiches, BLT sandwiches, hamburger sandwiches they are a great place to eat and their prices are very reasonable.

This place is so gross. If you love your dog do not take it here. Went off season on weekday figuring it would be less busy. On approach,one has to walk in and out of shallow water and thru narrow paths to get to the dog beach. It was almost impossible to avoid dog feces throughout the water and all... More

Dogs are allowed to run free. Shallow water and plenty of room. Waste bags and containers provided. everyone is pet friendly and respectful of others. This is a dog park never know how many will be there. Kids and dogs have a great time in the shallow water. Amount beach depends on tide

Dog Beach is a tidal beach that is more acessable at low tide. There were many dogs on the beach that were alllowed to run with no supervision.

You must be aware of the tide. There is really only a beach if the tide is out. It is worth working around the tide. The beach is safe and quite a ways through the mangroves so there is no chance of your dog getting out on the road. You must keep track of your dog. I know people who... More

Most dog owners wish they had access to more beach areas to allow their pups to frolic and swim. This area of Dog Beach is very small, and very crowded on weekends. The only designated area to "legally" allow your dog to enjoy some beach time for 50 miles in any direction. Some owners will just set up some chairs... More
