“Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Friendly atmosphere with great people and great dogs. Always the place to go for your dogs! Beach is clean, always had bags close by and if you ran out someone always had one handy for you. Just a great place to visit with your pet.....

“Let "er" rip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have taken my small Jack Russell a few times to Dog Beach. He loves to run, so this is really the only place I can wear him out! Beautiful place for dogs and their owners. Most people are nice and friendly. A few irresponsible owners let their dogs run too far off-leash and were not near by when an altercation occurred. Stay close to your dog! Small dogs are scared of the bigger dogs and can be defensive.

“Best dog beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Bring your dog. Dogs love dog beach! Dogs run free without leash. Play ball, or play with other dogs for fun. Bring your dog water! Salt water does not taste good. You can park in the neighborhood without paying for parking with just a short walk.

“It's a Dog's Life”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Stopped by midday on a Monday so pretty much no one else on the beach except one other family also with a dog, so very happy that we were able to visit without disparaging looks from non-dog people. Parking was abundant this day and a short walk to the sand. Dog had a good time digging in the sand and running about, and there were plenty of trash cans for clean up duty.

“Dogs off leashes...not a good idea!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The concept is great, but there are so many irresponsible dog owners who take their dogs and allow them to be off leash when they shouldn't be. For owners of small dogs, it can be very scary and intimidating. Parking is horrible and restrooms are inconvenient!
