Our dog had a blast! This was her first time on a beach. She loved it. Nice size beach, a few other dogs were there. Everyone seemed to take good care. Not a lot of parking. Will definitely go back when were in the area.

The city did this right. Nice entry right on to the beach. Dogs can run freely, unleashed. Great location, lots of fun!

It’s fantastic to have a piece of beach where dogs of all sizes are welcome! The only wish I have, it would be great if the stretch were longer - it takes no time to walk it from one designated end to the other.

This beach is perfect for a day visit with our little chihuahua who loved walking the beach. The area is very clean and kept up. There are 2 dog parks under the trees, a showerstation, water bowls, and restrooms for the humans.

A great opportunity to take your pooch to the beach when you’re in Venice. The dogs love it and they can have a taste of the gulf. For dog lovers this is a special treat.

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

I believe so. We live down here and don’t have an RV so we don’t pay that much attention. You could park on the road and walk over. Our kids (adult) and grand dog loved this beach. Safe for everyone which is important to me... More
