There are plenty of activities in Naples, but, as a dog owner, one thing that is missing (I totally understand why) is a dog beach. Happily, there is one just a little north of us in Bonita Beach. The Bonita Dog Beach is located on Estero Blvd, take Bonita Beach Road from Tamiami Trail, stay on the road until you come to the beach, where the road bends around, then follow it along until it becomes Estero Blvd, the dog beach is on your left side just after the second large bridge.
When it comes to searching Real Estate and looking for homes, we all take into consideration our pets, but a dog beach is not one of the priorities. Upon arrival at the beach, there is off road parking, where it is advisable to keep your dog on a leash, a short walk through the mangroves and you're there! Don't be put off by the high tide, the area around the beach is not deep, many people wade through whatever the tide is doing, but with small dogs, it is probably advisable to wait until you can see the sand.
My dogs absolutely love the place, if I say "let's go for a walk" I get no response, but "let's go to the beach" has them jumping up and down like mad things. The people on the beach are all animal lovers, so it's a fun place to spend a few hours talking dogs and stepping away from my hectic life selling Real Estate in Naples. In case you are wondering the crazy Springer Spaniel is mine!
