We were in the area in our RV so of course our dog was with us. We didn't know we would be there over the weekend so we decided to explore. My husband searched "pet friendly places" and we were so happy that she could spend the day with us instead of waiting behind till we returned. It was her... More

Molly the Wonder Dog is a Labradoodle - so being in the water chasing a tennis ball is standard procedure! LOL This beach is perfect for your pup to run - love the available fresh water hose to give her a bath before getting in the car and there's plenty of room for her to chase balls and be in... More

There are two gates to make sure your pet does not slip out. There are watering stations and dog rinse stations. A great place to go if you enjoy taking your dog to the beach.

Wow! Doggie paradise on beach. A one of a kind. Only issue us the non beach sector is too small. Heaven on earth for digs and their Hunan partners.

Very nice beach for your dog! Lots of beach for the dogs to run and play in the ocean. And all of the furry friends were well behaved while we were there. It's nice to have a beach available for your dogs to run, since most beaches in Venice are not dog friendly!
