Are the Crystal Coast Beaches Dog Friendly?

Comments Off on Are the Crystal Coast Beaches Dog Friendly?

Here’s a question we are asked all the time. Are the beaches of Emerald Isle, Indian Beach, Salter Path, and Atlantic Beach dog friendly? Here’s the good news… YES, as long as you keep your pet on a leash. Don’t forget to take common sense precautions. You will need to bring along fido’s drinking water and the necessary means for him/her to do “their business”. In the midst of the, dare I say, “dog days of summer”, be sure to bring along some shade for you and your dog to ward off the sun.

There are some species of dogs that may require sunscreen. Be sure to bring it along so spot doesn’t burn.

Don’t forget. Like us humans, dogs need to be rinsed off after a swim and run on along the beach too.

Pet-friendly Emerald Isle Restaurants

Here in Emerald Isle, there a few EI restaurants that allow your pet to enjoy dining alongside you. One of my personal favs is the Village Market. You and your dog can relax and dine out on their deck. Don’t forget about K9s and Coffee . They offer pet supplies and treats along with their gourmet coffees, smoothies, and their yummy desserts.

Take Man’s Best Friend for a Walk on the Wild Side

The 1.7 mile Emerald Isle Woods Park Trail is a perfect place to take a stroll with your dog. Part of the North Carolina Birding Trail, you will enjoy scenic vistas of Bogue Sound. Keep a sharp eye out for a pod of porpoise swimming by. If you happen to take your dog as you bike the awesome Emerald Isle bike path, be careful. The bike path can get really busy especially in the summer months.

Here’s more information provided by the Town of Emerald Isle on pets.
