DOG FRIENDLY BEACH
Mile Marker 73.5, Lower Matecumbe, Islamorada
The only beach in the Key West where dogs are welcome to take a dip.
Dog Beach in Key West, Florida is a Fido favorite. Dogs will have some fun in the sun here, but be sure to keep a close eye on your pup, as this is a rocky beach. After getting a little exercise on the beach, head over to Louie's Backyard, which is located next door to the Dog Beach and is a pet-friendly place to grab a refreshing beverage.
