Fido may join you for a swim in the Gulf or even just to craft some canine "art" in the sand. Make sure Fido remains on lead, so you don't have to go on the lamb from the Alabama Paw Patrol!
Dauphin Island Beach's sandy shores are the pawrfect spot for a leisurely stroll with your favorite furry friend, and the relaxed pace of life lends itself to easy living. If you are an avid bird watcher, be sure to bring your camera as the beach is a known bird sanctuary which forms part of the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail. Though there are many sand dunes throughout this beachside property, they are a protected area and are not to be walked on. Bathrooms are available on the grounds for public use, and there are even outdoor showers where you can rinse the sand off muddy paws and kiddie feet. Other pawrific attractions include a playground and many boardwalks suitable for walks with your favorite canine pal. There is a $5 vehicle fee to access the beach. Walk-ins may enter the property for a daily cost of $2.
Be certain to pack a picnic lunch as there are no known restaurants or concession stands near to this beach. Don't forget a snack and some bottled water for Fido too, and while you're at it, throw in a few extra clean up bags, so you'll have lots when you need them.
If you're ready for day at the beach with the family and your favorite pooch, don't delay! Plan a trip to Dauphin Island Beach today. It's pawsitively awesome!
