I personally do not own a dog, at this time. Yet, we walk on the path which overlooks Dog Beach. Our neighbor often takes his sweet dog there, though. One can just tell, the dogs are having so much fun. They have the opportunity to run wild, sniff the ocean breeze and socialize with other pets. I definitely recommend this... More

I really like visiting Dog Beach. I don't even own a dog! But getting to visit the beach and seeing the fun everyone is having makes it a wonderful place to visit. The Surfing dog event is funny and fantastic to attend. Other than that, both people and dogs are happy and having fun. I end up taking a ton... More

Living in Minnetonka, my dogs are used to off leash experiences in the woods near lakes and rivers. On my current excursion to California I have started to introduce them to the off leash dog beaches. I don't think they find them quite as a good from a nose perspective but they still seem to have fun. Huntington Dog Beach... More

I remember when my dog was a puppy he literally took off to the pier way beyond the dog beach. That was 14 years ago and hundreds of trips later and millions of good times. He is 14 now and still enjoys just going up top and smelling the salty air from the grass as he can now barely walk.... More

I visit the park solo about once a week. When family & friends visit me in HB, I bring them too especially in winter. What a lift to the spirit. Beautiful beach and good people that pick up after their dogs because they care about clean beaches for their dogs. And the happy excited dogs, like us are loving their... More

By far the best dog park in Southern California. Parking can get problematic on busy beach days. The beach itself is well separated from the highway by the bluffs. The dog owners are responsible, i.e. they pick up the poop. My dog hits the beach running and runs nonstop for an hour. Good place for kids.

Bring the entire family, especially the furry ones!! Romp, play and be a dog - what more could you want? Restrooms are, well - you know, beach restrooms, so there's much to be desired, but the beach provides everything you need for a fantastic day with the family.
