If you like dogs, this is your place to see every breed out there. I only wish I had my dog with me. Only has short term parking, with meters, stay close to the parking unless u want a ticket.

Parking is often hard to find, but put on your "patience" hat, go around the cars sitting and waiting, and you may find empty spots at the end. You can use a credit card at the meters, which are placed in different spots long the parking strip. $1.50 per hour as of August 2014.

Dog beach is great, I enjoy watching all of the dogs playing together and having fun. Amazingly enough there rarely are any fights too.

Having been to several dog beaches in California, this is our favorite! If you are a dog lover, it's even fun if you don't have your pets with you. Thumbs up to Huntington Beach for providing such a fun, free place for dogs.

Great place to take your four legged friends. Dogs run freely without leash and they make many friends. Hint: Keep your dog on a leash if they are not sociable as most dogs are not leashed. Great to share the day with family and dog! Pay for parking.

Our lab mix looooves the water and there's very few places in the Los Angeles area with water for dogs to play in. Huntington Dog Beach has been the solution to our problem! Absolutely gorgeous beach backed by scenic cliffs that keep the dogs from getting near the highway. On a nice day you can expect to see dozens (if... More

Make sure your pup is a strong swimmer if they go in the water! This is a nice long stretch of beach that has a nice natural barrier in the bluff. It can get pretty busy on a weekend with good weather, but there are always lots of happy dogs playing about!

If you love dogs, then a visit to Dog Beach is a must for you. You'll find the most action on weekends... or go early or after work on weekdays. You'll see all breeds of dogs romping, splashing, diving, fetching, and playing with other dogs and their people. Perhaps most impressive is the digging... you'll see a dog start pawing... More

This is an outstanding beach where you can let your dog run free and play in the sand and ocean. One word of caution, the dogs are great, the owners, not so, (sometimes).
