Beach rules: Located on Sanibel Island, the beach allows dogs as long as owners clean up after them and they are leashed. Leashes cannot be more than 8 feet long.
Beach details: Plenty of space allows you and your dog to get ample exercise or just take a break from your busy life. The tropical nature of the island and the nearby nature preserve makes this beach even more of an exotic getaway. Picnic areas and barbecue grills are available, and the area offers plenty of pet-friendly restaurants and accommodations, making an extended stay an easy option.
Jeremy Kane, who has been going to Algiers Beach
with his dog Willow since he moved to the area in 2008, says the variety of sea smells excites his canine pal. “The beach itself is fabulous — wide, never congested, and should we wish it, we can walk for nearly 4 miles east and double that to the west,” Kane says.
