  • Bring water shoes because when the tide comes in you’ll have to walk thru a bit of water to get to the beach. Dogs can go leach free. They love it. Shallow water. They poop and pee everywhere and no o...  more »
  • Great beach to sit and relax and get away from it. Lots of beach .no trees so it do get hot, bring water and sunscreen.  more »
  • Due to currents, not a great place to swim but certainly wading is fine. Read that this was the best place to shell but didn't find any. Very uncrowded and pleasant.  more »

  • I take my dog here about once a week. You definitely have to check the tides before going because if it’s high tide there’s barely any beach but at least the water is low. My dog loves to run up and down the sand bar. I never have any issues with the other dogs, just sometimes the owners. This isn’t a place you go if you don’t want to get dirty but it’s so much fun. Oh and parking is free!
  • Great Oceanside beach to take your dog for an hr or for the day!!!! Off leash swimming allowed along beach front! Ample parking spaces available (free) and a dog friendly shower to rinse the salt water off before leaving!!! Clean, well kept area!!!
  • I love coming here. My kids even love it here. Cool place to hang out. Nice tucked away beach..
  • We loved it & the dogs really had a great time, so we had to go back a 2nd time. Obviously, it is luck of your draw in regards to the other persons dog being friendly. We were surprised to see so many dolphins swimming and playing. Some of the negative reviews said their dogs got sick, but openly stated from drinking the "dysentery water". Their one star rating is on their own head, bring water for your dog. It isn't called dysentery water, but salt water. Salt water is what made your dog sick or they didn't have all their vaccinations. What is wrong w/ people not taking personal responsibility? Many of the people were friendly as were their dogs. I do wish some people paid more attention to their dog rather than chatting with other folks so much. That being said, there is some dog poop being overlooked & not picked up. I hope others plan ahead & have a good time.
  • This place is fabulous! Dogs everywhere playing in and out of the water. Responsible owners taking care of their dogs behavior and potty. Thank you Bonita Springs! ❤️
