Took our dog to this beach for the very first time. Parking was ok, but we arrived kinda early. Afternoon, folks were parking in 'no parking' areas, which made it a bit difficult to maneuver out of the parking lot. There are several gated entries....More

Want some joy in your life? There's nothing like watching a bunch of dogs at the beach to see what true joy is! A great place for dogs and their people too!

We have only been there once and we only saw big dogs. We will give it another try once we live in the area in a few weeks.

Well, if you have a lab or any dog who likes to chase frisbees into the water, this is the place. My dog and I have been coming here for a long time. However, I do not recommend bringing a picnic lunch. One family spread...More
