    In desperate need of better signs, in parking area and under glass where the map is now outdated. Hard to know where is open and where is closed for renovation. Dogs running wild off leash, owners ign...  more »

    This park has several options. We have taken our dogs to the dog beach. It is on the Ponce Inlet and is easier to wade in than the ocean. Quiet setting but you need to be there before the tide comes i...  more »

    The park is a 1 1/2 mile "boardwalk" through beautiful sand dunes, a gopher tortoise and nature preserve and a great doggie beach. You do have to leash the dog (s) but many have 20 foot and longer "re...  more »

    Beautiful set up! Before 10am animals can use the wooded boardwalk. It's quiet at sunrise but was getting busier with people fishing by about 730. It's well maintained and peaceful. I do wish they had an area where the pups could be off leash but it's still an amazing place to take the pups and enjoy nature. There is about a 10 minute walk to the beach from the parking lot just fyi.

    Beautiful. The boardwalk is a little old but the dog beach is huge and the landscapes of the dunes are gorgeous. You WILL have to walk quite a distance from the entrance to the actual beach. So its not very good if you are hauling a lot of beach stuff or days that it is really hot. Sunsets are so beautiful.

    Currently, the path to the beach is long. Also, there were boats coming up to the shore and I feel that it's dangerous and unsafe for the swimmers and dogs. Besides those things, its a clean beach and everyone was friendly and picking up after their dogs.

    Long walk for a dog on hot wood, but nice when you get there. No shade on the beach. No drinking water for dogs. Wish they would offer a golf cart taxi service.

    Really nice beach for dogs. If you go on the weekend get there early, the parking lot fills up fast. During the week it is pretty open though
