“If only humans could get along so well.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

One of the highlights of the end of summer is the reopening of Dog Beach. Stunning beach, especially at low tide when you can walk around the corner for a long stretch of beautiful sand beach below the cliffs. All dogs are off leash and I have never seen an issue. Dog watching at its best.

“Watch out for poop!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Went for the dog surf championships. Very cool to watch this event. Careful where you step! Beware, you have to pay for parking on the street. Somehow we missed the signs but luckily didn't get a ticket.

“A tired dog is a good dog”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

You can walk your dog on leash at most of the beaches in Del Mar at all times. Between June 16th and Labor day you can not take your dog off leash at all. The rest of the year near the mouth of the river down to I think 29th st. you can let your dog be off leash. The whole town is dog friendly with plenty of poop bag dispensers and trash cans.

“Leash Rules”
Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Dog beach is great, but leash rules apply thru labor day, which is when we were there. After labor day, no leash required, which is obviously preferred. The beach is nice, clean and fun for all. Parking is really tough, one has to get lucky to find a space on the street. Also, it is too far to walk from main hotels and commercial in Del Mar.
