Welcome to Dog Beaches Near Me – the best resource for finding dog-friendly beaches in your area. We’ve assembled a comprehensive list of dog beaches and lakefront areas that where dogs are allowed, including off-leash beaches and even pet friendly parks. We include all types of locations for your pooch to play in the sand or water.

We recommend each location on our site because we consider several factors before adding it to be best dog beach resource. After careful research, and some personal experience, we consider whether a beach allows dogs and under what circumstances. We try to only list officially designated dog beaches, but we do list some beaches where dogs are welcome and it is common to have dogs be off-leash. We also suggest that you always check with your local authorities to confirm if parks or beaches allow dogs before you visit.

If we find hours, websites, addresses, and contact information, we include that with the listing. However, our database can always use some help. If you know of a beach that’s not on our list, please let us know about it and we’ll get that added as quickly as we can!
