Galveston Island is a short drive from Houston, only an hour or so. Everyone is encouraged to roll their windows down when they hit the causeway and watch their pup’s reaction to the fresh Gulf air.
Galveston has 32 miles of dog friendly beaches open year round. City ordinances require dogs to be on leashes at all times. Our dog Tofu loves vacationing on Galveston Island and can often be found on the beach or in his kayak.
Besides the beach, there are so many things to do with your pet. Pocket Parks (dogs on leashes welcome) and Galveston Island State Park (dogs on leashes welcome) are great for families and pets alike.
Sand `N Sea provides all their guests tips for traveling with their dogs and a list of pet friendly Galveston restaurants. Some of our favorite dog friendly restaurants are: Farley Girls Café, MOD Coffeehouse, Shrimp ‘N Stuff, and West End Restaurant & Sand Bar.
And we have a great dog park – Lindale Dog Park, located on the East End of the Island at 400 Marine Drive. The park is completely fenced, with benches, water stations and a separate area for small dogs.
A Sand `N Sea beach house is the perfect place to spend quality time with family and four-legged friends. Sand `N Sea manages over 40 pet friendly vacation homes on the beach and bay. Relax on the deck, explore miles of sun drenched beaches, or play in the waves outside your door.
People traveling with pets love to come to Galveston Island and rent a vacation home from Sand ‘N Sea. The Gould Family stayed in a pet friendly Sand `N Sea home, “We liked the location and absolutely loved the deck. We were vacationing with two small dogs and not only were the railings spaced closely for their safety, there was also a gate at the top of the stairs. You could not find a better property for small dogs! We would stay here again.”
