Dog Beach is a good spot to surfing. But the fact of having dogs on the beach is something that really didn't make me comfortable. It smells like dog piss.. there's a lot of dogs running around and getting into the sea. I knew that before I get there, but I was just wanting to see how it was.. and... More

Went here with my friend, to let her dog see beach and sea for first time. Took our shoes off to walk to sea. Didn't get very far. Some of the people who go here should be banned from taking their dogs. How can you let your dogs do their business, and not CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG???? It was... More

Cool place to let your dogs run free (no leash required) but so many people don't pick up after their dogs that it smells so bad now. It is right on the beach and it ruins the area. I won't go back. I saw a dog get hurt the last time I was there by another dog.

Great place for dogs and people who love dogs. Dogs get to run free and play in the sand and water. People are the one draw back. There are a few people who don't watch their dogs and clean up after an "accident". Most dogs get along but every once in a while someone with no brains will bring an... More

We love Dog Beach which is located in one of our favorite areas of San Diego - Ocean Beach. Dog beach is the best fun (if you are a dog lover) whether you bring your pooch or not. Last year we brought our three "kids" (canine kids) and they had a blast. It is like the biggest and best dog... More

My dog absolutely loved this beach. It was very clean with calm waters. Great place for dog lovers. We could've stayed here the whole day. Definitely worth the drive down to San Diego!

happiest place on earth ... doggy joy in every direction. Dogs run free and rule the beach. If you want a pure beach experience that's not with your dog, go on the other side of the jetty. If you have four feet or want to play with your four foot friend in the waves, go to dog beach. It just... More

This was just such a great experience for our dog's first visit to the ocean. The beach and the water were very clean and our dog had a blast! It is so great to be able to let your dog run and play with all the dogs! Our dog is only 6 months old and he had a great time... More
