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 one cleans it up. Gross

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.

A great place to let your dog enjoy the beach. Everyone was respectful and the dogs really enjoyed themselves.

Great place to take a dog that likes water. The place is very pretty for everyone. There is even a dog shower to rinse the sand off after romping on the beach.

Nothing like the open dog beach up in Venice, but it's secluded and deep in nature. Depending on the tide, you might have to wade ankle to knee deep water, but the dog are is spread out, quite and a great place for the dogs...More
