Fido-Friendly Beaches at the Jersey Shore

8th Ave Dog BeachOur four-legged friends love beach time as much as we humans do. Wonder where your dog can join you for some rays and waves? Thankfully, the aptly-named Where Can I Take My Dog to the Beach makes it easy to find out which beaches are pooch-friendly.

In New Jersey, the rule of thumb tends to be that whenever and wherever people pay to get onto the beach, dogs aren’t permitted. Several beaches that allow dogs throughout the year are off limits now that it’s summer, but there are two options available to dog owners in Monmouth County.

Asbury Park’s beach at 8th Avenue and Ocean Avenue allows dogs in the early morning—and all day in the off-season. And Manasquan has Fisherman Cove, which is open year round. Be sure to bring a leash because you don’t want to get fined!

Where Can I Take My Dog to the Beach also lists dog-friendly beaches in Delaware, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Virginia. So if you and your four-legged friend are traveling along the Eastern Seaboard, now it’s easy to find a scenic spot for a relaxing, fun-filled stroll.
