The Dog Beach at Pier Park is located in gorgeous Panama City Beach, Florida, and is one of the few Florida beaches that allow dogs! This pet-friendly section of the beach at Panama City Beach is on the other side of the highway from Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville inside Pier Park, a massive shopping complex. Park in the Pier Park parking areas, and head across the street. Entry into this pawtastic pupperdise can be found on the west side of the pier on Front Beach Road, down the public beach access points 56, 57 and 58.
This dog-friendly beach stretches for 400 feet, and usually doesn't feel crowded during the week. On the weekends in the summertime, though, this beach is buzzing! Here, you will find soft, white sand and clear, blue water for your dog to prance around in. Your dog does need to stay leashed on the beach, on a lead no longer than 6 feet.
Be sure to pack all you will need for a furbulous day in the sun, including water to share with your thirsty pup. Clean-up bags are a must, and there are trash cans on site for easy waste disposal. Keep the snacks and toys at home to prevent any issues between dogs, and help keep the peace at this pawsome beach. Note that only three dogs are allowed per person. Be sure to keep to the pet-friendly area of the beach, as dogs are not allowed on the section behind Treasure Island.
There is minimal shade and the sand can burn your pooch's feet, so plan accordingly to ensure your pup has a good place to rest and cool off! Check it out on a weekend morning with your dog before it gets super hot for the day, or after it cools off for the evening for optimal temperatures.
The Dog Beach at Pier Park is one of the best and largest dog beaches in the area! You and your pup are going to love hanging out at this Florida hot spot!
