Great place to take you dog on and off leash. Lots of space to walk near the water or futher up toward the cliffs. Clean beach with clear view of inlet and the volcanoes to the west.

This is a nice beach for walking and looking at mountains. There are several access points with parking. You will see trucks and SUVs there.

The Kenai City Beach is a great family designation. You can walk for miles picking up shells and different colors of stones. You can see eagles and different search birds. You can drive on part of the beach.
