Are you and your dog in the mood for some beachside fun? When you’re in Palm Beach County, Florida, and want to visit one of the best dog beaches around, look no further than Jupiter Beach.
We consulted with Christopher Korbelak from the Office of Public Engagement at the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department who provided the details below.
Jupiter Dog Beach
Getting there: Jupiter Dog Beach is a 2.5 mile stretch of glorious beach that starts at dune crossover marker #26 (north of Ocean Cay Park, 2188 Marcinski Road, Jupiter, Florida 33477) and proceeds north to dune crossover marker #57 (south of Carlin Park, 400 S. S.R. A1A, Jupiter, Florida 33477).
The details: Well-socialized, obedient dogs and their conscientious owners are welcome to visit from sunrise to sunset. Your dog can play and swim off-leash and you can lounge, walk the beach, and even bring your fishing pole. Bring your camera for some gorgeous sunrises.
Parking is free and restrooms and showers are located at nearby Ocean Cay Park and Carlin Park. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Loggerhead turtles, and scoot your towel over if you’re near a nesting spot.
Note: Please respect any NO DOGS ON BEACH areas. Dogs are not allowed in lifeguarded areas, Palm Beach County Natural Areas, or Town of Jupiter parks. Please pick up after your pet with your own poop bags or the free dog bags provided by Friends of Jupiter Beach (FJB) at dune crossover marker 29.
