Pensacola Beach Dog Friendly Guide


Humans aren’t the only ones that need vacations! Pets are part of the family too, and for the most memorable beach vacation, you’ll want to bring the whole family, including your dog!   

Luckily, Pensacola Beach is quite a dog-friendly area with designated dog beaches and restaurants that allow dogs to dine in. Also, at Pensacola Beach Properties, we have several participating units that welcome pets. Keep reading for the best guide to everything dog-friendly on Pensacola Beach.   

Dog-Friendly Beaches  

Pensacola Beach has designated two beach accesses for your pets to exercise and play on the soft beach sands. Park East and Park West are two accessible areas for pet owners to bring their dogs if they abide by park rules.   

Dogs must be on leashes and stay within the designated doggy areas. Bags and disposable wipes are made available to clean up after your dogs, and park hours are sunrise to sunset, except for turtle nesting season, when they open at 7:00 am.   

Park East  

Park East is the East end park, the first parking lot past the Portofino resort.
