Description
Described as a sleepy beach town, Dunewood Beach is part of a Fire Island, a New York area known for pristine ocean beaches, direct ferry lines, and gorgeous sunrises. Dunewood beach is a small community with limited facilities but is often packed during the summertime. You and your pooch can explore Dunewood beach together, however, there are no specified rules about how your dog should walk around with you. We suggest keeping your pup leashed at all times. 

According to NPS.gov, many areas on Fire Island will not allow dogs. In fact, between March 15 and Labor Day, pets are restricted on federally owned ocean beaches in the area. Because Dunewood is a city beach, you are able to take your pup - so long as he or she is leashed - on the beach, just make sure you're checking the restrictions and dates and ensure you're in accordance with them. 

Dunewood beach features dark, sandy coasts and access to the longstanding tradition of sailing instruction. In fact, if you and your pooch stroll the area during busy season, it's nearly impossible to spot the ocean without a single sailboat on it. You and your leashed dog can wander the Dunewood beach area, watch fishermen reel in lines of fish, and meet up with other dog owners on the island. 

It's not stated if dogs are allowed to swim in the water, so we suggest checking with officials before letting your pup take a dip in the ocean. Though not a tourist- specific beach, Dunewood - the town and the beach - welcomes visitors during on and off seasons. Just make sure you're always cleaning up after your pooch! The last thing you want is to leave a doggo mess in a beautiful, beachy area for someone to accidentally step in.
