We take out Boxer here at least once a month to let her run wild and enjoy the water. This is also a great surf spot that I partake of weekly

Huntington Beach's Dog Beach is on PCH between life guard towers 22-28. Your dog has over a mile to run free in the ocean and on the beach. One of my dog's favorite places in the entire world. We live in HB- so we go here numerous times per week. There is street parking on PCH and also several paid... More

This is one of the few places to take your dog to the beach. It is a nice section of North Huntington Beach. Dogs must be kept on a leash but as long as everyone picks up after there dogs it is quite an enjoyable place.

Though we live in LA it is worth the 25-30 min trip to Huntington Beach. Its the only beach that is clean and stretches about 2 miles. The beach shores has plenty of room for our 4 dogs to run and course the water too. A great way for the dogs to run free and mingle with other dogs. Make... More

We took my friends dog here this past weekend and it was so fun! I wish I lived near here because my dog would love it! Loved seeing all the dogs have a great time off leash.

I love dog beach however be aware that many people let there dogs roam free and some of the dogs are not well trained. My friend's small dog was attacked and bit by another large dog there recently.

We were on vacation and heard about dog beach. We are animal lovers and love dogs. We loved dog beach. It was clean and beyond fun. It was a therapeutic experience just going and petting dogs for hours. The dogs and the owners were both very friendly. We had an awesome time, can't say enough good things about it! If... More

Our baby boy enjoyed the beach as much as we did. It was his first time to be at the ocean and he just ran towards the waves as soon as we hit the sand. The look on his face was just precious. Almost all the dogs are friendly. We will definitely be back.
