About Picnic Island Dog Beach

Is Picnic Island Dog Beach Dog Friendly?

Yes, Picnic Island Dog Beach is dog-friendly! The beach is fenced off from the parking lot and actually goes into the water so that the dogs don’t swim off. There’s no small/big dog separation, but plenty of room to spread out. Amenities: plenty of free parking, restrooms, some picnic tables, benches, a little shade, a dog wash station (bring a towel), grassy areas, and sandy shores. Some humans enjoy getting in the water with their pups, a good idea to keep a close eye out for ocean “wildlife!”

More Info:

Don’t let the industrial approach dissuade you, once you arrive, you’ll enjoy lovely views and breathtaking sunsets. Bring your own food & drinking water if you plan to stay awhile. There’s some shade, but bringing a beach umbrella might be a good idea. A boat ramp & fishing pier are nearby. Depending on the time of day, you might want to bring along some bug spray too.
