A great beach in general and excellent beach for the dogs at North Beach. A good place to exercise the pup and relax on the beach. There are porta potties available. No food or drink for sale. Paid parking lot and some free street parking nearby. North Beach Area Leash Laws, 2015: Dogs must be leashed June 16th through Sept... More

Take a poo bag and a leash and watch surfing dogs on a good day. The beach is bisected by a river. The northern area has volleyball nets. The rules are different from Memorial Day to Labor Day requiring dogs be leashed in at least part of the beach. Even without a dog it is fun to watch them play.

Took the kids here to play in the sand (wasn't warm enough to swim). They loved all the happy dogs running around. Beautiful location.

Check out Dog Beach where dogs are allowed year round. The only disadvantage of this beach is there's an inlet separating it from Del Mar beach next door which can make it difficult to walk back and forth across...really depends on the how high or low the tide is at a given time.

It's a nice dog beach. Go at low tide so you can cross over and walk down the beach. Parking can be tough. Dog owners were courteous and responsible.

If you were there yesterday a helicopter had to make an emergency landing up the beach. We have seen seals come ashore, when the tide it out there is amazing room for dogs to run. Breeds that like swimming have a estuary that provides safer swimming than the ocean.

Lots of friendly dogs to play with, very clean beach and water. Large area to roam and run. The parking area has a few urban campers but no trouble there. Great spot to take the dog for an afternoon at the beach.
