Dog Beach was the vision and work of one committed man, who led a grassroots moment to allow dogs on the beach. The area is safe, clean, and truly belongs to the people and the dogs. There are stations which offer plastic bags for pick up after your dogs. There is also sweepers that come for cleaning. It is actually... More

When we lived in OC this was our daily retreat. Now that we live in SF we try to visit as much as possible, but we certainly miss the pup haven of HB dog beach. It's a doggy playground for pups of all sizes to be truly free and untethered on the beach. People are generally very responsible with their... More

Everyone needs to experience Huntington Beach's Dogs Beach. They even have Dogs Surf Contest late in the summer. This is a great place to take a walk and let all your stress and problems release. Who could be unhappy watching the happy doggies running around so happy and free. Great for walking and a bike ride. Get out in the... More

Just a lot of dogs and dog parents playing at the beach! I've had a good experience-except when my dog came home smelling like a rotted fish. My dog loved the smell! I like it here.

I felt like a kid when I came here. It's so fun to watch the dogs run amok and play in the water and chase each other. It's beaches like this that make me want to move to California :)

Super great place for a walk with or without your fur baby. Most dogs run and play and have a great time.

One of the very few beaches in SoCal dogs can enjoy some freedom to socialize with other dogs. The sand is kept quite clean, poop bags are provided at the entrance of the beach. It can be a bit stressing for small dogs due to the presence of large breeds, but in general all behave in a friendly manner.

This is one of the best dog beaches I've been to. The parking is a little difficult but the actual beach is really great. There's something about that type of people that go there - they're all laid back, easy-going dog lovers. The best kind of people in my book! Lots of sand for the dogs to roam. The shore... More
