Beach is always clean, family friendly and a great place to rest & relax as the sun, surf and sand nourish the soul :-)

The Beach was extremely well-maintained, clean and a perfect place to spend the sunny weekend with family and kids. Loads of things to do nearby - perfect for a relaxing day off.

I don't think so. Never saw any dogs on beach or boardwalk. Maybe if you go off season.
