Spending time with doggies is one of my very favorite things to do. I love the fun and simplicity of a stroll with a dog, and getting to know each dog’s distinct vibe. Dogs always bring a smile to my face and as corny as it may sound, I want to show them how much I appreciate them!!

Dog Walking in Kure Beach

Located in the aptly named Pleasure Island, you’ll find a hidden gem of a town by the way of Kure Beach. As the greater location may have you believe, Kure Beach is nothing if not a small slice of paradise for you and your precious pooch. From dog beaches to dog parks, as well as plenty of dining options for you and your doggy, you’ll have your hands full when it comes to trying to decide where to stop first! 

In Kure Beach, one of your main stops will be the Gurney Hood Dog Park, part of the greater Gurney Hood Park. With soft sand to cushion your toothy tot’s toes, plenty of drinking stations, and a nice swimming pool to splash around in, it’s easy to see why you'd want to stop at this doggie heaven! You’ll also find plenty of frisbees to toss around for your feisty Fido. All you’ll need to bring is a collapsible water bowl, and plenty of doggy waste bags to keep the area nice, clean, and pristine.

Nestled in the southern area of Kure Island, you’ll find Fort Fisher State Park, a beautiful beach where well-behaved dogs are allowed to explore on their leash year-round. The six-foot leash rule may seem like a bummer, but there’s still plenty to do on this beautiful beach. Tiptoe around in the tides, relax in the nice warm sand, or take your wily woofer for a nice walk. The waste laws on the beach are strictly enforced, so be sure to clean up after your pup so everyone can continue enjoying the beach. Bring drinking water as well.

Make your way northward and settle in to the central section of the town, where you’ll find a dog-friendly restaurant with a menu that can’t be beat. At Big Daddy’s, you’ll be spoiled for choice -- choose from a wide selection of fresh, Cajun-inspired seafood, from gumbo to Carolina crab cakes and anything in between that you can think of! Dogs are more than welcome at any of the outdoor tables; in fact, they’re encouraged to accompany you! Your pup will be provided with a fresh bowl of water shortly after your arrival, so all you need to worry about is keeping pup’s paws off your plate!

A short distance away, in the northeastern section of Carolina Beach, you’ll want to make your way to Freeman Park, a dog-friendly beach that allows dogs to roam wild and free during the off-season. There’s lots to see at this beautiful beach, and your dog would love to chase a frisbee across the expansive shore and splash around in the low tide. The waste laws are strictly enforced, so be sure to keep doggy waste bags on you at all times. Do your part to keep this beach clean -- no one likes a litterbug!

A hop, skip, and pitter-patter of your pup’s paws away, you’ll find Oak Island, another beautiful island off the North Carolina Coast. There, you’ll find the appropriately named Oak Island Beaches, a selection of beaches with beautiful scenery and plenty of furry friends for Fido to frolic with. Though your darling doggy will need to be kept on a leash, they’re sure to enjoy walking up and down the beaches with their favorite person -- you! Enjoy the fresh air and sunny days with your best friend, and there’s no way you can go wrong. Just clean up after yourselves!

Last but certainly not least on your doggy to-do list is visiting Central Wilmington, specifically the Park Place neighborhood. Although Wilmington isn't situated exactly on the beach, it’s still worth the drive to the wonderful Wilmington Dog Park at Empie Park. This park provides two separate sections for large and small breeds, as well as dog waste stations and plenty of water, so all you’ll need to do is bring some of puppy’s favorite playthings. Find yourself a nice and shady spot to enjoy while you watch Fido sniff out some new friends. The main park has plenty of family-friendly activities to enjoy, so bring the whole pack!
