Families flock to Sandy Beach to enjoy its beautiful coastline and river which is well-known for its great swimming and fly fishing. Avid fisherman flock to this beach whose waters are chock full of steelhead trout. However, the Russian River was found to contain dangerous blue algae several years ago. Just to be sure Fido is protected from this toxic plant, be careful that he never drinks the water and that he is well hosed off after a swim. There are beautiful views to be seen from the Russian River so don't forget to bring your camera to commemorate your great day at the beach!
There are bathrooms on the premises for families to use, but there is no other access to water. To keep your favorite canine buddy from lapping the river water, it's a great idea to bring bottled water with you from home. While you're at it, throw a few clean-up bags in your "beach essentials kit" as you'll need some to pick up and dispose of Fido's waste.
This pawrific park earns two paws up for its picturesque paths which lead from the parking area to the beach. Since all dogs need protection against not-so-fur-iendly diseases, stop by your local vet to be sure that your best canine pal is up to date on all of his shots. Craving a little beach time with your favorite furry friend? Why not stop by Sandy Beach in Monte Rio! It's a pawsome spot!
