Easy to get to and clean. Seems like everyone is very good at cleaning up after their dogs here. So nice to have a place for the dogs to run free.

With miles of open beach along the Pacific shores, the City Huntington Beach wisely set aside a segment of beach that allows dogs and their dog owners.

Fun place for people and dog watching! The beach is kept clean by the pet owners. It's a joyful place to be.

Great place to let your dog run off the leash! Dog Beach is very long and not crowded. Easy to access and we didn’t have any trouble finding parking. Have been here several times will be back again and again!

Griffin did not get t0 the beach - but we toured the walking trail. Be on the lookout for squirrels that live in earth-dug holes. All the dogs seem to know this. Huge area for dog romping.

Yes, off the pier fishing is allowed without the need to purchase a license. Right past doggy Beach, many people fish off the beach near the jetty.

Yes you can swim there. The water is pretty warm not bad. Some of the surfers wear wet suits but most don't. Hope you have a great time !
