  • Bowman’s Beach

    This beach is popular with beachcombers searching for seashells & offers swimming & picnic areas. One of our readers tells us Sanibel Island, which is in Lee County, permits dogs on the beaches, but pets must remain on a leash at all times and guardians must pick up after them. Pets are not permitted on nearby Captiva. Reader Notes: "A wonderful place to take your dogs. They must stay on a leash, but that is not a problem, once you visit you’ll want to return." "The best bet for dog people in Lee County is to pay the $6.00 toll and go to Sanibel Island. Bowman's Beach is leashed and humans must pick clean up after their dogs." "This pet-friendly park is big, open, sandy, clean and not too crowded. You can take your dog right onto the beach and right into the ocean. Parking is $2.00 an hour. "Please mind your dog. This is one of the very few areas on the islands that tolerates pets." Please Share...

This is one of two off leash dog parks in Brevard County; the other is in Melbourne. Reader Notes: "The Satellite Beach dog park will go back to its 8am-11am open time for Monday-Friday beginning Saturday, August 1. The weekend days remain the same opening at 8am-7pm." "The park has great amenities, including drinking fountains and plenty of toys. Doggie pick-up bags were well stocked and located throughout the park. But the best part about our two visits was how friendly the other dog owners were. They chatted with me and each other and had a relaxed and welcoming attitude to newcomers like us. I highly recommend this park. The city keeps it in great shape, there's plenty to keep dogs amused, and in my experience the people who attend are thoughtful and considerate. Note from Web Mistress: We've heard additional dog parks are in the planning stages for future dates at Lori Wilson Park and at Fay Lake Wilderness Park. We'll try to keep you informed.

The park isn't as big as the one on Bayshore, but it offers more tables for owners to sit and more trees for shade. The large dog area isn't as big as Bayshore. But the small dog area is a little bigger than the small dog area at Bayshore. The small dog area at this park has a lot of visitors. More so than Bayshore. The large dog park is hit or miss. Of course, weekend mornings and evenings bring many visitors in both areas." Please Share...

The beach area was vey small and there were a number of rocks there. We need someone to lobby for us pet owners to open up more beach property to allow dogs. There seems to be something wrong when they allow cars and not dogs on the beaches." Please Share...
