Summer is here! We are on the hunt for the best dog friendly beaches and vacations. Look out for our 4 part series covering the Best Dog Beaches & Vacations in the United States.
Here are some great dog-friendly beaches (Part 3 of 3):
- Best Dog Beaches & Vacations Part 1
- Best Dog Beaches & Vacations Part 2
- Cannon Beach, OR
- Jupiter Dog Beach, FL
- Oak Island Beaches, NC
- Fort Myers Beach / Dog Beach, FL
- First Landing State Park Beach / Virginia Beach, VA
A summary of the beach or location is included below, but you’ll have to go to our specific pawtivity listing or destination guide for more information.
Cannon Beach, OR
Cannon Beach has received many awards as best small beach town to best romantic getaway. And of course, off leash dogs who are well behaved and have good recall are allowed anytime on the beaches. Many come here to see Haystack Rock (aka Goonies Rock – yes, from the movie), an amazing coastline, tidepools, birds, and wildlife.
Jupiter is home to a 2.5 mile long off-leash playground for dogs, available year-round from beach marker #25 on Marcinski Road to beach marker #59 at the south end of Carlin Park. Jupiter only has 3.4 miles of beaches, so we love that so much of it is open to dogs! Besides the beach, there’s canoeing and hiking in the area too.
Oak Island, NC
Oak Island has 10 miles of dog friendly beach with calm waters that’s perfect for swim. Dogs may romp off leash during off season. Many go to Oak Island to swim, fish, boat, kayak, paddle board, look for clams or participate in other water activities.
Fort Myers Beach / Dog Beach, FL
Fort Myers Beach offers a lot of pet friendly options, including lodgings, restaurants, and of course dog friendly beaches, including Fort Meyers Beach and Dog Beach. There’s also so many other activities and attractions to do in Fort Myers to make it a great vacation spot.
Do you have any other recommendations for dog friendly beaches? Or suggestions on other things to do at the beaches we mentioned above?
