Big stretch of beach where dogs can roam without a leash. Fun for families and pets!

Not only fun to watch the dogs run around, great place to find seashells on the sea shore.

Our dogs love going to this off-leash doggie beach! I like to take them up the channel, parallel to the jetty, because it's less congested than at the main part of the beach, and there are no waves crashing down on them (the dogs are great swimmers, but on the small side.)

There are lots of open spaces to run and swim and play, and most folks (and their pups) help foster a great pet community.

When visiting, please remember to clean up after your pet, and make sure they are on-leash from the parking lot to the sand. This area is not fenced, FYI.

Always a good time at the dog beach! Everyone is friendly and it's always clean. Our pup has a great time when we do!

Even if you don't have dogs, they are so happy to be off leash and running into the ocean it is fun to watch.

I take my dog here pretty often. He loves it. I recommend going on a weekday if possible if your dog doesn't like a gang of other dogs around. Make sure you bring plenty of water and doggie poop bags too.

Perfect place for dog lovers and also has good surf! Not too crowded, lots of free parking, but of course packed during any holiday weekend, tourist and summer seasons! Your dogs will have a blast, but please clean up after then. Restrooms within walking distance.

Very spacious. Lots of sand to run on. Great surf to swim in the ocean or river to swim in safely. Parking can be tough but usually ok early.
