Long, long beach with plenty of viewing of friendly dogs and local surfers on the H.B. cliffs. Limited parking available for the tourists, this is mostly a locals place to catch a wave when the surfs up or to take there dogs to play.

We took our husky to the dog beach on a Sunday. There were plenty street metered parking, which was convenient. The beach is very clean and all the dogs were well behaved. Our husky had a great time meeting and chasing other dogs on the beach. It would be great if there were some eateries nearby. Highly recommended for dog... More

there's really nothing to not like. guess if i had to find one thing it's the people that go to the dog beach but don't like dogs and act annoyed by them. like people jogging and getting upset when dogs run with them disrupting their pace..... pick another beach! this one is for the dogs and doglovers

This is a great place to meet......PEOPLE! People love their dogs and they love it when their dogs are having a great time. So yeah, it's fun to see all the dogs having a great time, but the people! EVERYONE is so friendly, relaxed, smiling and engaging because their dogs force human interaction, running up to you and your pet.... More

My two girls have very different motivations here. My older gal prefers to sniff and frolic. My younger one impresses everyone with her surfing/swimming talents when she braves the waves for her ball!

This beach will allow you to let your dog run free on the beach like you used to be able to do. No leash and nothing but dogs having a blast. It seems they are so happy they don't want to do do anything but run after a ball or stick and play in the water. If you don't have... More

We wanted to have our dog experience sand and the ocean for the first time. We were suprised how clean and well maintained the beach was. They had many dogs running and playing some off the lease. They have a high cliff so your pet does not run towards the highway. Our dog was not sure of the sand and... More

Loved to take the dogs to this beach. Friendly dogs. Slight hill to approach or exit. I did get back to the car 10 minutes after the posted closing sign to find my car with a parking ticket. Observe the times and be cautious.

Great place to let your dog off leash. Has been maintained and saved by one veteran who has been there almost everyday for many years. Thank you. Be careful if your dog has not been off lease before. Give them time to adjust.
