Description
Florida is a beautiful place that beckons any human or pup to enjoy their time outside. The sun, the sandy beaches, and the beautiful scenery always make for great places to relax in, and this is especially true for the Biscayne National Park, which is a dog-friendly area along the eastern Florida coast. If your pup likes the seashore and a little time in the water, this is the place for you.


The national park holds nearly 172,971 acres of land, with 95% of its acres being water. The land part of the park makes up three major islands and the slim coast off of Florida. The parking area for the park is at Convoy Point, where the park's headquarters and the main developed area is. Inside the area is a paved and sandy path that surrounds the park, with the Biscayne National Park Institute and Ranger Station. There are public restrooms, picnic tables, and water fountains to enjoy before playing in the open grassy field at the north part of the point. There are a dog-friendly boardwalk and boat launch on the eastern tip of the point, where people can use to canoe or kayak in the water with their pup or splash around in the shallow part off the beach.

Dogs are allowed in boats and in the shallow water off the beach, where they can play and swim in the water, or can play in the open area along the north side of the point. Dogs are not allowed on islands or undeveloped areas of the park, and must remain on a leash 6 feet or shorter. Be sure to bring water and clean up bags along for your adventure.

Whether you plan on boating with your four-legged buddy, or want to take them out to a scenic park to get some sun, the Biscayne National Park makes every effort to include you and your dog when enjoying this amazing spot in Florida.
