Water in that area is super clear. You can see marine life just swimming by (turtles, fish, dolphin). Also watching the water blow up from under the coquina rocks that have formed along the beach is spectacular. Great place to go any time of year

What a neat place!!! Great for pictures, swimming and sunbathing. My daughter loved the rock formations. The water is beautiful as well as the scenery. People brought umbrellas and blankets. Very relaxing place. They ask for a $2.00 donation. Well worth it!!!

We had a great time visiting and going through the visitors center. It was a really cool experience and the kids loved watching the water spray up when hitting the rocks.

The small parking lot is often full, but if you can get in you'll enjoy some nice trails, as well as the interesting shapes of the rocks that form a barrier against the ocean.

I've lived here for quite a while, 20+ years and I never get such a thrill as discovering some cool new spot. I enjoy this beautiful State of ours and turning people onto spots that I discover myself is a treat. Blowing Rocks Preserve is...More

Spent most of the day beach combing for shells and rocks at low tide. The only downside to the Preserve is the hours- 9 am to 430 pm. To see the blowing rocks, you have to be there at high tide. We accessed the beach...More

I really don't know, as I don't have a pet and while we were there I didn't see any. Sorry I couldn't help with your question. It really is a beautiful place.
