My dog and I have been exploring California's dog friendly beaches, this time choosing Huntington Dog Beach. We found it a wonderful, spacious place for off leash exploring, a solid mile of relatively clean sand to hike. The surf can be a bit rough, great for the surfers who share this beach, but the swimming dogs had no problem. There... More

Huntington Beach is beautiful, so when you add dogs it can only get better. All the owners are mellow and dogs are well-behaved. The husband and I come here even though we don't have a dog because the atmosphere is so nice. And I also love when dogs come over to say hello :)

This dog friendly beach is great. It is around 2 miles long & your dogs can be unleashed. Get there early though as parking can be a problem after 9am, especially on the weekends. Remember to respect this jewel and pick up after your doggie.

Apparently yes we can, if you are dog at dog Beach. I am lucky enough to live a bike ride away. They all just play and get along, and jump in the water and shake. All good!!!

Beware of a fine if you don't pick up after your dog! It's a $200 fine! Lots of garbage cans and dog mit dispensers. Great place that's off leash!

Our family, including two dogs, went for the first time on Labor Day. Plenty of parking for our 24 ft RV at Bolsa Chica, short walk to dog beach. Dogs had a great time, not too crowded. Will go again.

The beach is beautiful! All of the dog owners watch their dogs so there are no mishaps. Our dog really enjoyed himself.

We love dog beach! We've been coming for years. So many off leash dogs playing and running, chasing each other, running in the waves. There's just something about it, all the dogs just look like they are having so much fun! My only qualm is that you should obviously always be watching your dog and if they poop, the owner... More
