About Davis Island Dog Beach

Is Davis Island Dog Beach Dog Friendly?

Yes, Davis Island Dog Beach is dog-friendly! The beach area is securely fenced part-way into the ocean, allowing Fido to splash and play to their heart’s content. Plus, there are two separate fenced runs for some land-based fun. Amenities include ample free parking, a handy dog wash area (bring a towel!), water fountains, plus waste bags & trash for easy clean-up. While there are a few picnic tables, bringing a chair might be a wise addition. And before you head out, it’s a good idea to peek at the water quality reports before your visit, as there might be occasional hiccups.

More Info:

While the views lean towards an industrial vibe rather than a lavish tropical escape, this public dog beach boasts an oceanfront location with grassy areas and sandy shores for your pup’s enjoyment. The ample swimming space is perfect for some pup-paddling fun! Conveniently, it’s just a short drive from various pet-welcoming hotels in Downtown Tampa.
