Saltar’s Point Beach is an off-leash dog area. It’s a great place to just sit idly on a log or have a picnic with your family while your dog runs around by the water. The park beach boasts 500 feet of an inviting shoreline - ideal for you, your kids, and of course, your canine friend. Plus, it has a historic touch to it – featuring two stone buildings from the 1930s!
This is one of those places that does a great job of combining a picnic with a dog’s day trip. You will find picnic shelters with cooking facilities and several picnic tables. So, as your dog goes around, running along and back & forth the beach, you can hang around the picnic area.
Drinking water is also available so you don’t need to worry about carrying it to the park. Restrooms are available for you but not for your canine family member. So make sure you clean up after your dog and bring a poop bag!
While there is a footbridge over the tracks, the stairs can be a little steep. This is a bigger concern for people with smaller dogs. In any case, you can enjoy watching the train go by under the bridge as you walk across the tracks. As you hang back or rift through the rocks, your dog will love the shallow place. Just like you, your dogs will also enjoy the sight of ferries running to and from the Anderson and McNeil Islands.
Overall, it is a very refreshing and quiet place; relatively unknown but with its own charm. So, if you’re looking for a place that is not too loud and prefer to take your dog to a rocky, quiet beach, then Saltar’s Point Beach is the place to be.
