The beach was mostly clean but it's quite crowded, many dogs off leash. Your pooches need to be social and well trained. Owners mostly good about picking up after dogs. It's not a great beach by people standards but, judging from all the happy dogs, it gets top barks in their world! Think of it as a big watery dog... More

This is a wide, open beach with great water access and close in paid parking during the day, but free at night

This is a small area within the breakwater area of Long Beach. Water is dirty and often gross. If you have a car, go to the Huntington Beach Dog Beach -- it's better, bigger, cleaner, and you can run for miles with your dog.

Very, very, very filthy beach. Trash and sea debris everywhere. Lots of plastic trash on the shore as well. However, me being a dog lover is why I give this beach an average rating. I'm here visiting and didn't have my dog with me, but if I did, I would bring here here. Only saw one pile of dog poo... More

It's nice to have the option for off leash in LB at the beach, however, this beach is DIRTY!! Tons of trash washes up...condoms, needles, water bottles, wrappers...GROSS. I stopped taking my dogs there because I was worried they would get poked by a needle or eat something that washed up which would make them sick.

Whenever I travel to Long Beach on business, a visit to Rosie's Dog beach is a must. While I can't have my pup enjoy the amazing adventure, it is so entertaining to watch all the canine going-ons! What is also nice is the responsibility most dog owners display. a fun outing just watching the antics of all the four legged... More

A local favorite spot to bring your furry family. Rosie's beach is located about a mile from the pier, marked off by orange cones. The pet area is rather large so there is plenty of space to chuck the ball for your pooch, or throw a frisbee into the water.

No matter if you have 2 or 4 legs this place is instant happiness guaranteed. I went here for an afternoon-run and brought a book and just sat on the beach watching man's best friend playing in the water. Both dogs and owners are very social and we did have a game of fetch.

This is a tremendous place to bring your dog. Everyone is friendly and it's a great way to meet new people if you've just moved to the city. Since we have the break wall the waves a minimal and easy for the dogs to play fetch. This is the only dog beach left in LA county (the next closest one... More
