Leash-Free Beach?

Hello,

We are visiting for a week and trying to locate a place rumored to be leash-free-dog-frieldly beach called "Beer Can Beach."

Help in pinpointing or alternate suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

JudytheGypsy

Don't know about Beer Can Beach, but there is one in Moss Landing (between Aptos and Monterey) that's a leash-free beach. You get off Highway 1 and go through the Marina/restaurant area in Moss Landing and go to the end of the road.

I looked up Beer Can Beach too - I've been there, just didn't know it was named that - LOL. I've never spent too much time around Seascape Village though.

Could it be that Moss Landing changed it's policy? We are planning to visit Aptos soon and are looking for an off leash beach. But when I go to the Moss Landing State Beach web page it states that dogs are not allowed at that beach at all..do you have any recommendations for us?

There aren't too many leash free dog beaches in the Santa Cruz area. Here is a list of beaches which allow dogs, including some which allow them off leash.
