This wasn't exactly what I expected. It felt more like a lake instead of the ocean. But it was perfect for our small dog. She had a blast chasing her ball in the water. Every now and then a boat would come by and make...More

Beautiful but hot walk. You might want to wear a hat and sunscreen. It is very dry, but you can see some wildlife and the ocean breakers are awesome!

Don't think you can use it. But, after 5 p.m. the park is free. If you are staying for more than 2 days and want to go with the dogs during the day. Buy the pass. You can go in and out of the park as many times during the... More

Unfortunately, the boardwalk is not continuous. There is a short stretch between the doggie beach boardwalk and the boardwalk from the parking lot that crosses the sandy foot path. A distance, I'd guess, of 25-30 feet.
