Exploring the Crystal Coast with your four-legged friend can be an experience not soon forgotten.  Our beaches welcome your dogs year-round, so whether you’re hitting the waves with your champion swimmer or coasting the sound with your paddle board loving pooch – make sure you’re well equipped for their vacation!

Beach Umbrella
You might like sun tanning but your dog does not!  Make sure you provide him or her with some shelter from the sun to cool off in the shade.



Dog Water Bowl
Fresh water is essential!  Make sure you take enough water for your lucky dog on those hot summer days.  Bring along a collapsible water bowl like this to save on space in your beach bag!


Dog Leash
Over 25 miles of soft sandy beaches are just waiting to be sniffed, dug and explored!  Just make sure they are on a leash and cleaned up after.  If they poop — you scoop.


Dog Toys
Water toys are a must!  Make sure you pack a few toys that float — making it easier to find them in the waves.


Some pups are not natural swimmers.  If yours fits in that “I swim like an anchor” category, a doggie life jacket is the best way for those stumpy pups to enjoy the waves and sound!
