You can relax on your own while your dogs play or you can go walking with them on long stretches of sandy beach.
Next on the list is the beach along the secluded Jekyll Island located in beautiful Georgia. The greatest part about this beach is that a majority of it still remains undeveloped. This means you and your pups can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing time on the beach even during peak seasons. Though 65% of the island is undeveloped, there are a good set of gorgeous hotels and restaurants to choose from, many of which also cater to pets.
