Fisherman's Cove Conservation Area reviews
We had a Fabulous time with Coco Chanel our fur baby. Everyone was respecting social distance, the area was beautiful with the view of boats ⛵️. Very happy to be able to go to the beach with Coco... more »

Great dog beach off the canal! Love watching the boats head out to the ocean and come back! Best part is during low tide, I have a small dog who is scared of the bigger waves but LOVES the sandbar here! It's like being out in the water but shes still able to stand! So much fun! It's also very clean and not a ton of people.
What a find down the Jersey Shore!!! This place is a perfect way to spend the day with your best friend(s)! Very dog friendly with a hydrating station to rinse off your pooch as well as a doggy water fountain. Even doodie bag dispenser too to ensure everyone is responsible for proper dog etiquette. Leashes dogs welcome but as I noticed from the regulars just get a retractable leash or a long lead and you’re good! Then your dog can go out far while you still have control. The beach is a bit rocky so I noticed after a bit my feet and my dogs feet were getting sore. But otherwise, I honestly can’t wait to go back...and I’m sure neither can my dog! Also, down the road within walking distance is Riverside Cafe which is yet another great find and super dog friendly! They even have “Happy Dog Meals!” Overall, an excellent little nook down the Jersey Shore!
