You will find lifeguards on duty during the summer months in designated swimming areas on the ocean side of the beach. You can enjoy beach chair and umbrella rentals for the beach if you do not have your own, and you will also find outdoor showers, porta-potties, a retail shopping area for when you are done at the beach, and a snack and food stand just in case you work up an appetite running around with your pup.
People love how dog-friendly this area and beach are. Most shops and outdoor restaurants allow your dog to come in with you and hang out when you shop or eat. If you go to the beach during the off-season or the peak season before and after hours, you must always have a leash with you. Dogs can be off-leash during the designated times, but you are required to carry a leash with you always. Your dog is also expected to behave well and never show any aggression to other dogs at the beach.
There are no poop bags available, so please bring your own and clean up after your dog right away - you want to keep this beach clean and doggie poop free.
Overall, this is one of the best dog-friendly beaches and towns you can take your dog to! With tons of sand to run in, plenty of water to splash in, and lots of things to do, Folly Beach is a must-go place in the summer, winter, spring, and fall!
