Had heard about it, had ridden our bikes by it, but had not taken our Maltese mix there until recently. We loved it but even better, Kea loved it. Being off-leash with all the other dogs to interact with, the water, the sand....he was initially overloaded on input, not knowing what to do first or next. We coaxed him into... More

So much fun to spend a few hours at dog beach in Del Mar. Fun for our fur-baby-puppy. Dog owners and pets all get along ! Must try it!

The people here and their dogs were very friendly and courteous of others. My dog made friends and played for hours off her leash. Great place to lounge and enjoy all the cute dogs! Very clean beach too!!!

This was one of my favorite spots in San Diego. We took our dog each morning, it's in a great location and everyone was so friendly! If you are visiting with your canine I highly recommend visiting

We stayed in the area with our three kids and three small dogs. We went to Coronado dog beach, Del Mar dog beach and Fiesta island dog beach and agreed that Ocean beach the OG dog beach was the best for our family. It had restrooms nearby and pet friendly dining was walking distance. Parking was close to the beach... More

Brought my dog here a few times while staying in Ocean Beach. Very wide beach, lots of space for you and your dog. Agree with another reviewer on here: people need to be more diligent about picking up the dog doo! I don't care if your dog ran 1/2 mile down the beach from you and left a plop...pick it... More

Finally! A real dog beach for dogs and their pack. Our dog loves to swim and dig in the sand. This is not always possible unless we can find a secluded area somewhere away from the public area. We really appreciate the foresight and thoughtfulness of this opportunity. Thank You, Thank You!

I love hanging out at Dog Beach with our puppies when I visit my family, but im not sure its right as a tourist attraction, unless you have a dog!

Great beach. Bring your shorts. We forgot. Have to love dogs running free and enjoying themselves chasing balls, swimming, wrestling with each other. Worth the stop!
