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!!!

We had a great time visiting and going through the visitors center. It was a really cool experience and the kids loved watching the water spray up when hitting the rocks.

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.
