MASSACHUSETTS DOG BEACHES

Massachusetts is the best northeastern state to take the dog to the beach in summer. The resort islands are particularly dog-friendly and several spots on Cape Cod will permit dogs in non-swimming areas. The beaches around Boston are generally restrictive until the off-season.

Recommended Tail-Friendly Beaches

Cape Cod National Seashore.  Dogs are allowed on all nonnesting protected beaches year-round. Walking the beaches at Cape Cod is a special experience due to limited sight distance down the shore caused by the curvature of the coastline. The effect is that of a series of private beaches as you move from beach alcove to beach alcove. In addition to Atlantic Ocean beaches backed by impressive highlands, the park extends across the cape to include bayside beaches with gentler waves for doggie swims.

Nantucket Island.  Dogs are allowed on island beaches the entire year, although there are restrictions during the summer. Dogs are even allowed on the shuttle buses to the beach.
