Dog Beach lives up to its name

Dogs love it here. People love it here. Dogs run amok. I've seen beagles who supposedly don't love the water take the plunge and howl in joy across the water. Every kind of dog... read more

Dogs love it here. People love it here. Dogs run amok. I've seen beagles who supposedly don't love the water take the plunge and howl in joy across the water. Every kind of dog, person, and dog toy is here. Your pooch will be exhausted by the time you leave. Bring plenty of water, a lawn chair, an umbrella, and... More

We had a wonderful time playing with the dogs at Dog Beach. It was so cool watching the dogs play in the ocean and on the beach.

I would live here if I could. Love the hundreds of dogs and the beach is remarkably very clean. Super place to visit.

Great place to take dogs of all sizes. I make several trips a year from Arizona just to take my dogs to the ocean. Only draw back is the people who don't clean up after their dogs.

Such a fun spot. SO many happy dogs and just so much fun! We didn't have a dog with us because we were just visiting but we stumbled upon this spot and we had fun just watching.

Very clean beach and you wouldn't expect that being a dog beach. Out dog enjoyed it a lot. Would had been great if it had a wash station right before you left.

What a beautiful beach for the pups! The locals were friendly and understanding of our 3 big shepherds being at the beach for the first time. This is a off-leash beach, so be mindful of your dog's behavior & manners1

This is a fun place for dogs--tons of dogs running around without their lease (mine stayed on the lease cause he isn't fully trained yet). Dogs running and jumping in the water among kids and families just have fun in the surf. I don't have anything negative to say but parking is HELL during mid-day on a weekend. Go early... More

Went there with my 10-year-old daughter. We came to stay in San Diego for a week from Texas. This was one of our stops. My daughter has two dogs so the thought of seeing a beach for dogs that can tun free, definitely captured her interest. She had a great time, we actually spent about three hours there. Even though...
