Dogs are not usually allowed out on the sandy beaches, but there are some excellent beaches that you can enjoy with your dog.Some beaches require you to keep your dog on a leash, while others have specific leash-free areas set aside. A few beach parks even provide fenced doggy playgrounds above the beach complete with rinse-off stations and drinking water.This book covers all the dog-friendly beaches from Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin (Tampa Bay area) all the way south to the beaches of Fort Myers.
I have personally visited all of the beaches in this book, so you can be sure that the information in this book is not just a result of internet research.I do not get into the subject of rental accommodations that are dog-friendly. Thats a big topic for another book and the reader may be best served by turning to the internet for a dog-friendly place to stay. It is not unusual for a family to make arrangements for a dog-friendly accommodation only to find out once theyve arrived that their beloved dog is not allowed to go out onto the sandy beach with them.
This book will help you avoid that situation.By using the directions in this book along with either a paper map or software like Google Maps, you should easily be able to locate all the beaches in this book. I have included GPS coordinates for many locations.The information contained in this book is also found in my printed book BeachHunters Florida Gulf Beaches Access Guide, also available right here on Amazon.com.
