HB Dog Beach

Easy access to the dog beach area. Lots of dogs, everyone is always in a happy dog loving mood. It's always a great experience when I take my dogs there.

Great off-leash beach to bring your water-loving dogs (I have 2 Retrievers) and wear them out. The obvious joy shown by all the canines here can't help but put one into a good mood. Just make sure your pet is friendly or on a leash.

This place is great! We love it! Our dogs love it! One of the only dog friendly beaches in south oc! The dogs always enjoy the trip more than going to a park. Parking is always full, best to wait at entrance for someone to leave.

A beautiful one mile stretch of beach devoted to dogs. It is like going to a dog show, but the people are not snooty and dogs are having fun. Donate a few dollars to help with the upkeep and poop bags.

Huntington Dog Beach is a great place to walk your dog and see lots of other dog owners who love the sand and ocean. Everyone seems to clean up after their dog which is great. The only downside is parking. Usually lines for metered parking - but there are 2 lots. Hope they can create another one.

Good spot but very crowded on the weekends and not everyone can be trusted to bring friendly dogs. Weekdays in the winter are the best to go. Low tide allows for more space.

Our home is a 5-minute walk to this beach, and we're there every week. You can see the excitement in every dog as they approach the sand. Every is very good about cleanup, and if you love dogs, you'll have a blast taking a walk here.

We passed by this beach several times going back and forth to our location. being a dog lover I had to pull over and just watch all the dogs having so much fun in the water! I wished I had brought my dog on my vacation just so I could bring her here. Next time for sure. All the dogs... More

We love dog beach! Southern CA is not as friendly to our furry family members as, say, Northern CA is. Huntington Dog Beach is one of the few places where we can hang out together and get our paws wet.
