What a great place to spend with family, friends and of course our unconditional loving dogs. It's a treat for all and everyone is happy and friendly. Wish there was more parking and restrooms. Food trucks would be very welcomed, we do get hungry.

Great place to bring your dog. Just be mindful that not everyone's dog is friendly! Bags for picking up poop are almost always available at the parking lot level

We loved this beach. My dog 7 months old first time. She loved it. Dogs were friendly that day. Most were on leashes. Would recommend this place to dog lovers.

Nice beach to take the family. Beach was exceptionally clean for a dog beach. Parking is a disaster.

The area is not fenced in -- it depends upon natural barriers to keep the dogs in: the ocean, the cliff between the sand and the road. If your dog tends to take off, it may not be the safest place for her. I have seen dogs... More
