Wonderful area to visit at the Jersey shore. Kids and pet of course loved it. Dogs must be leashed which is better for all. Then we went to the Riverside cafe facing the Inlet around the corner. Very very pet friendly offering Doggy happy meals....More

We took our dogs to Fisherman's Cove dog beach to see if they like the beach. I read several different reviews and was not sure what to think. It was a nice experience. It is a small beachfront. There are a lot of small pebble...More

Great spot on the Manasquan River where one can swim with their dog or walk a few more steps and sunbath without the dogs. Great place to sit and watch the fishing boats coming and going out the inlet.

Yes, there is a beach there and some people do spend the day with their pet. It is a holiday weekend so I can only imagine parking will be a headache and the beach will be crowded. GO EARLY-----by 9-930 to avoid the crazy.
