When you're ready to take Fido for some salt water fun in Flagler Beach, you can choose the pet-friendly areas either north of N 10th St. or south of S 10th St. (see map below) for easy beach access. If you're headed north towards Beverly Beach, The Hammock and Marineland, all of the public beach access areas are pooch friendly. Just please make sure to bring a leash and that you leave nothing behind but paw prints.
Let your pooch stretch their legs and enjoy the outdoors when you explore the many trails in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches. Take a hike among the 217 acres of Betty Steflik Memorial Preserve and discover coastal scrub and marshes along the boardwalks. Be on the lookout for gopher tortoises and migratory birds along the way. Go fishing at the pier overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway or launch a boat at Moody Boat Launch for a day on the water.
For more outdoor adventure, travel north of Flagler Beach to James F. Holland Memorial Park in Palm Coast. The 1.5-acre dog park offers two separate areas for large and small dogs along with a wash area for dogs to cool off and get clean after a fun day of play. For owners, the park is home to a walking trail and a unique playground themed after the Bulow Plantation Sugar Mill—combining history and fun for the kids.
At Java Joint Beachside Grill, located across the street from the Atlantic Ocean, you can take advantage of the pet-friendly deck as you enjoy an al fresco meal for breakfast or lunch.
A local favorite since 1947, High Tides at Snack Jack is a fun waterfront restaurant your dog will love too. Choose from fish tacos, steamed shrimp, fresh fish and more while admiring views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Dogs will enjoy their vacation too at Si Como No Inn, home to 1.5 acres of land that’s great if you want a scenic stroll with your pup. This oceanfront property is home to eight cottage-style rooms located between the ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.
