Great place to let your dog run off the leash! Dog Beach is very long and not crowded. Easy to access and we didn’t have any trouble finding parking. Have been here several times will be back again and again!

Griffin did not get t0 the beach - but we toured the walking trail. Be on the lookout for squirrels that live in earth-dug holes. All the dogs seem to know this. Huge area for dog romping.

My dog loves coming here. Really dedicated to people with dogs so don’t recommend going and trying to relax without a dog. They can ply in the water, run on the beach, play with the other dogs. Be prepared for sand in the car but...More

Yes, off the pier fishing is allowed without the need to purchase a license. Right past doggy Beach, many people fish off the beach near the jetty.

Yes you can swim there. The water is pretty warm not bad. Some of the surfers wear wet suits but most don't. Hope you have a great time !
