Even though we didn’t time our visit with high tide to see the water blowing up through the coquina rock formations, we loved our time here. Walking through the “jungle canopy” from parking lot to ocean was an unexpected bonus. You immediately forget the cares...More

Be sure to go when close to high tide. If there is no parking in the lot, don't Parkin the grass or you will be towed. Some days you have to drive past several times until parking is available.

It is a very beautiful, peaceful and serene place to visit. This was my wifes idea. We packed a little picnic and got there early. There aren't many people. The place was quiet. It is the only beach in Florida that I saw "cliffs". You...More

Always fun to stop by here, surrounded by woods, the rocks all have holes so at high tide the water comes in and sort of makes blowholes, neat to see.

Water in that area is super clear. You can see marine life just swimming by (turtles, fish, dolphin). Also watching the water blow up from under the coquina rocks that have formed along the beach is spectacular. Great place to go any time of year

What a neat place!!! Great for pictures, swimming and sunbathing. My daughter loved the rock formations. The water is beautiful as well as the scenery. People brought umbrellas and blankets. Very relaxing place. They ask for a $2.00 donation. Well worth it!!!

IT is absolutely beautiful. Bring water shoes, so you don't hurt your feet on the rocks, which are in the surf, and on the beach, which is made of these rocks. $2/ admission for adults, free for kids of a certain age. Parking is the...More

I really don't know, as I don't have a pet and while we were there I didn't see any. Sorry I couldn't help with your question. It really is a beautiful place.
