Dogs are truly blessed to have a captivating place where they can romp and play in the tropical waters of Florida Keys. Anne's beach is a charming stretch of sandy shore with shallow waters so your kids and the family pooch can swim in safety.
Established native trees provide a beautiful backdrop of shade for bathers and their dogs plus there are pavilions with access to fresh water. All woofers must be on-leash and exercise good, doggy behavior. This makes for a relaxed atmosphere where everyone can enjoy a hassle-free day out at the beach.
There is a busy road right behind this secretive nook, so on-leash is possibly a wise idea. Bathrooms and clean-off showers are available with limited parking in two lots. There is also a boardwalk that leads to picnic tables and stairs down to the beach. It costs nothing to go there and pooches absolutely love splashing around and practicing their dog-paddling in a waveless setting.
Litter bags are generally easy to access at Anne’s beach and it's appreciated that all dog owners do their part to keep this doggy-haven pristine. There does tend to be gatherings of seaweed back from the shore, while the sand has a mushy feel underfoot. The word is out! All canines are welcome at this woofer wonderland, so weekends can be super busy. Weekdays are preferred by many with fewer beach-goers present and more dogs and their owners.
Dog-friendly beaches are a wonderful find for guardians who want to show their pup a great day by the sea. By sticking to the rules, adorable alcoves like Anne’s beach will be hosting fun, dog outings for many years to come.
Since the devasting effects of Hurricane Irma in September 2017 - Anne's beach has closed, but plans are being discussed to restore this popular Florida attraction where locals and people from other places can bring their pooches for a fun day in the sun.
