“Dog Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Dog beach is wonderful to visit with a dog or without.If you love dogs just go to see all the breeds frolicking around in the surf. One of the few places where Fido can run free and have a ball.

“Best dog beach along the coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Go to the "dog beach" area off of Coast Highway where there is a beach where the water is not to deep. This area "off leash" year round. Or go all along Del Mar Beaches where after Labor day dog's are welcomed on leash anytime or specific hours durning the summer months. From 25th street to the lagoon is "off leash".

“If only humans could get along so well.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

One of the highlights of the end of summer is the reopening of Dog Beach. Stunning beach, especially at low tide when you can walk around the corner for a long stretch of beautiful sand beach below the cliffs. All dogs are off leash and I have never seen an issue. Dog watching at its best.

“Watch out for poop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Went for the dog surf championships. Very cool to watch this event. Careful where you step! Beware, you have to pay for parking on the street. Somehow we missed the signs but luckily didn't get a ticket.
