Dogs are welcome on every beach that makes up the Cape Hatter National Seashore as long as it is not a designated swim beach, and pups must always wear their leash (and it must be 6-feet or less.) Although this may sound inconvenient, most beaches are non-bathing beaches, so it is not challenging to find a dog-friendly beach in this area.
You are required to pick up after your dog when they are done going to the bathroom, and you must discard your poop bag in the appropriate location, such as a trash can. There may be poop bags provided in some locations across the seashore, but bring your own just in case there are none at the beach you choose.
The beaches at Cape Hatters National Seashore are long and wide, making them a great place to walk your dog for a few miles and allow them to run along the ocean as well. Dogs are allowed in the water on non-bathing specific beaches. There are not many shady areas on the beach, so if you are looking to hang out in the shade on the beach with your pup, bring a beach umbrella. You will find bathrooms scattered along the beaches - restrooms are mainly located near swim beaches and at all visitor's centers.
Overall, if you are looking for many dog-friendly beaches to explore or just want some stunning and pristine beaches to walk and play on with your dog, head to Cape Hatters National Seashore!
