Pet-Friendly Beaches

There is nothing like watching a dog having fun on the beach...Lucky for us dogs are welcome on the beaches in St. Augustine, they just need to be leashed for their own safety and the safety of others. Make sure you bring plenty of fresh water and don't forge to scoop up the poop so our pets can continue to enjoy the area beaches.
