A beach day isn’t complete if we don’t have our boys with us — pup included. We recently discovered Haulover Dog Beach Park in North Miami Beach and we couldn’t be happier.

Our favorite dog beach is in West Palm Beach, about an hour away from our home. When we heard about Haulover Dog Beach Park we knew there was one thing we needed to do: go and explore it! 

Dog Beach Essentials
Planning a day at the beach means we only bring the essentials and pack the night before. I’ve discussed the items we take to the beach in a previous post.

Since adding the Beachmate system to our list, we’ve been able to cut down on a couple of items. Now, we bring two chairs, two/three towels, the Beachmate system, our cooler and the beach cart. The life vest is just to help our firstborn stay afloat.

Ready For Playdates At The Beach
On warm days, I’d meet up with friends at the beach for playdates. Now with two, it became more of a hassle to carry all the items. After trying out the Beachmate system at the dog beach, I feel confident in bringing the boys to the beach on my own. All you really need is the Beachmate system, some sun and lots of sand to fill up your buckets.

The shovels work well for digging holes for your beach umbrella.

Simply rinse your buckets in the water and be on your way. 

Are you curious about the Beachmate system Here’s what’s inside:
– 5 durable, multi-sized buckets;
– 2 strong shovels;
– 1 softer cooler; and
– 1 removable canvas tote.

The Beachmate system is multifunctional in the sense that the bucket bottoms can be used as lunch trays and drink holders. Its velcro straps attach towels and backpack beach chairs.

With the canvas tote, you can bring other items, like trucks and other snacks that don’t need to keep cool. The best part is, everything is easy to clean and built to last.
