We took our chihuahua since they did not allow it in any other beach and the place is only mangles, mud and much bad odor, the animades are allowed without leach, come to annoy the little ones. A bad experience.

I wish this was a managed park because it's a great concept and that could potentially be a wonderful experience for dog lovers. The tide was so high that there was barely a beach; we ended up mostly walking through a swamp. And why on...More

This is a nice option for people and their dogs - water and a beach. Dogs and owners seem to be having a good time. This isn't a beach you'd want to spend the day at if you value your olfactory senses; it is smelly....More

Fantastic area for the dogs to have their time when in holiday . Shallow wading water with wading water birds . Lots of sandy beach areas even though the tide was in . Watch out for currents as the tide shifts around 10am.

There are a lot of "dog people" in SW Florida and we all are looking for good places to let our pups run and have fun with other dogs. We have water dogs, so the dog Beach sounded like a sure bet. Some pro's: beautiful...More

I was excited to take my puppy to the dog beach. To say I was disappointed was an understatement.. The beach is wonderful for dogs however it is vile in that owners of dogs don't care about picking up waste or taking care of their...More
