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

Always take our grandpups here...For a doggie beach it is very clean, everyone picks up after themselves, everyone is friendly!

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.

Is there a happier place than a dog beach?! Such a nice, chilled atmosphere, we got some really nice sandwiches from a nearby vegetarian deli and sat overlooking the beach and were lucky to see three enormous white pelicans fly past at close range along the beach and with wingspan of nearly ten feet - we were in awe.

I grew up in HB an even though I've been living in LA for more than 15 years, I still find myself back at dog beach at least a few times a month. There is seriously no better place for dogs and their owners to spend some time together. The surf can sometimes be rough and always check the conditions... More

There are no fences so be sure you can verbally control you furry friend. Parking is somewhat limited but you can park farther away and walk with a lease until you get down to the waves. The pets and their owners really seem to enjoy playing in the waves. Remember this is the dog beach not the kids beach and... More

First and foremost you have to love or at least have an appreciation for dogs. That said, even if you don't have a dog with you it's fun to visit. As was the case for my wife and I in June while on vacation. As soon as we viewed the beach with almost every breed know running, jumping and barking,... More

Beautiful beach. Go during low tide as the beach is very wide. Recommend weekday if possible versus weekend. Remember to bring water for your pooch.

If you have a dog or are a dog lover you must come to this beach. Parking is easy either by the meters or one of the side streets (free parking) and there's always plenty of room for you and your dogs. Dogs can run off leash just make sure to keep an eye on your dog...
