No matter where you go along Florida's east coast, you're spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches. With warm weather and mile after mile of wide, sandy beaches, this part of the world is perfect for anyone who likes to spend time in or around the water. And if you find yourself in Flagler Beach, a city in Flagler and Volusia Counties, there are ample opportunities to hit the sand with your canine companion.
Flagler Beach offers plenty of pet-friendly beach access for dog lovers and their furry friends. Your dog is welcome on the beach north of N. 10th Street and south of S. 10th Street. However, keep in mind that your pet will need to be on a leash no more than five feet long at all times. Your pet will also need to be well socialized and under your control, and it's up to you to ensure that you carry plastic bags with you to clean up after your dog.
The beach here is nice and wide, with ample room for you and your dog to take a relaxing stroll. You can look for seashells, enjoy feeling the waves lap at your feet, or just snuggle in next to your dog on the sand to spend a while just taking in your surroundings.
If you're looking for some off-leash fun, head around 1.5 miles back from the beach along Highway 100 and you'll find Wadsworth Park. This is home to a 60,000 square foot fenced dog park, which is a must-visit if you want to give your pet a chance to run free. You'll also find a couple of pet-friendly restaurants in Flagler Beach, so why not stop in for a meal with your pooch after a long day at the beach?
It might just be the paw-fect way to end a spectacular day on the sand!
