The Southwest Florida tourism bureau makes it easy to find pet friendly beaches, restaurants, and more. Bringing a dog to The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel is easier than ever.

“Nothing makes a dog happier than a day by the sand, so we’ve made finding pet-friendly hotels, restaurants and beaches a total breeze, because we believe every family outing should include every family member.”

“For some off-leash excitement there’s the rightly named Dog Beach Park located on the south end of Fort Myers Beach. It’s one of Florida’s only no-leash beaches and a big hit for locals and visitors. The secluded shoreline and shallow waters make Dog Beach Park one of our best pet-friendly beaches, and when you get the chance, there’s even more spots to explore.”

Here’s a fun video of Dog Beach Park – Woof! Woof!

Many bars and restaurants are pet friendly also. If you’re not sure which restaurants are pet-friendly, ask the staff. Pets on a leash are almost always allowed where there’s outdoor seating.
