Love bringing my dog to enjoy the beach and run and play in the sand and water. Just wish everyone would watch what their pets where doing. I have encountered a few not too friendly dogs and owners.

When we arrived there was enough parking, but I didn't like that it was close to the highway with no fence. It was low tide and had no issues with the walkway to the beach. If you not a sun person, bring your own umbrella....More

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.

So much fun for the dogs and the owners beautiful piece of land beach has gotten smaller but it's still great esp since water is so shallow

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

Never seen anything like this before as we are basically land locked where we live. We did not have any dogs with us but returned twice just to watch the fun thedogsand humans were having. Great.

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.
