This Beach is just wonderful, Sometimes parking is a full like most of Southern California so you have to wait or circle around for a bit, and you have to pay per hour for parking, however its never that big of a deal cuz the Happiness it brings watching your Dog jump into the waves and Run through the Sand...

We went during the week it was quiet, we walked down a little ways and had some space to our selves. Our dog had a great time! There is a drop off between the road and ocean so he couldn't run onto the road. He made lots of friends and burned off some energy. The weekend was a little different... More

Great destination for people and their doggies. Lots of both especially on weekends and holidays. You must clean up after your pooch. But what fun on the sand and in the water with your pet and other visiting pets. Or just watching them. There is even a skateboarding bulldog. You will see the most unusual things.

I suppose the dog beach is great for dog owners, however I have been riding my bicycle on the bike trail since 1983. I follow the speed limit and am very careful because some of the most dangerous people on the bike trail are dog owners. My biggest complaint are people walking their dogs on long leashes. They allow their... More

Rare place where you can actually let Rufus off the leash to play and run like a banshee - he or shw will love it! Just do be careful to control your dog and keep an eye out for other dogs - sometimes they will get in a brawl... :)

My labrador loves dog beach. She has so much energy, and she retrieves tennis balls that are thrown into the ocean. She surfs back into shore to give you the tennis ball so that she can swim and retrieve over and over again. This is a great beach to exercise your dogs.

Love watching the dogs run around and interact with each other. They're all so playful and friendly.

We were visiting from out of town so didn't have a pet with us. We had walked on the cliff but decided to walk on the sand on the way back to the hotel. It was such fun to watch the variety of dogs and how they enjoyed playing in the water and chasing things in the sand. Since it... More

We took the dog to the Beach on 3 days. It was a blast. The dogs seemed to enjoy playing with each other and having fun in the Pacific Ocean.

Always a terrific place to take a stroll on the beach, with or without a dog (or dogs). Any time of day is great. Vast majority of dogs and dog owners are very social and well-behaved. Wonderful beach. Very family oriented atmosphere without ever feeling crowded. Dogs LOVE it!!! We love it!! It's one of our favorite spots in Southern... More
