  • We take our dogs here every week. Great place to let them run in the surf. Just be responsible and bring a leash. Leash your dog when you approach horses or other dogs on leash. And bring a bag to pic...  more »

  • There is a small parking lot that seems to limit the number of people. Dogs are welcome but must stay on leash until you get to waters edge. Also accessible from Hammond Trail. We always enjoy Clam Be...  more »

  • The county has neglected to properly enforce dog laws pertaining to leash/voice control and cleaning up. The county has also not cleaned up hazardous rusty nails after I reported them. Furthermore, the county's wooden boardwalk has fallen into disrepair, is wobbly, and has holes that could cause serious injury. If the county were not so negligent with a) enforcement and b) maintenance, this beach would be a good, but it isn't.
  • It's a place of beauty and majesty. Beautiful beach settling, cave, plenty of hikes and activities to offer. Great for the family, dogs and everyone to enjoy. Let your weird hang out a bit and have a good time.
  • Everyone should run bare footed thru the sandy beach at least once. The sound of the waves are so relaxing and calming.
  • Really nice Beach, plenty of shells and things for the kids to find.
  • Camping on the beach with your dogs is the best.
