If your travels take you along the beach city coast, south of Los Angeles, with or without your pooch, make sure stop at Huntington Beach dog beach. You will get a reality check that dogs really do rule the world... and they should... If your tail wagged every day appreciating the wonder of life, the smells and scents, and embracing... More

My husband and I were staying at the Hyatt with our Chihuahua adjacent to a beach that unfortunately doesn't allow dogs. Nor is our hound allowed on the Huntington Pier. Thankfully, there's Dog Beach where you can surf and play with your pooch.

This is a lovely dog beach! Large, clean, with pleasant people who cleaned up after their pets. In fact, we didn't see any trash at all.

Very unique opportunity to go swimming with your dog or just play fetch and splash on a hot day. When you crest the hill from the parking lot you will see 100's of dogs off leash in a sealike dog heaven. Not many places give so much space freely for dogs to frolic. Great place for dogs to meet dogs... More

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
