There is a large dog park on Fiesta Island. It is fenced, however not completely, and a dog could wander into trouble. There are few shady spots. The big draw is the water. However, as my dog was more interested in the many gopher holes,...More

Dog beach area is quite large. There is plenty of room for all people and dogs. The water is also quite calm. Great place to bring your dogs on a nice sunny San Diego day.

Large island in the bay. A lot of motorhome/homeless people hanging out and that was a little uncomfortable. The bay is beautiful and there is a lot of space on the island with waterfront access

We enjoyed walking dogs for an hour unleashed in the large fenced park, then day camped with our kayak and truck parked on the beach. Horses are also welcomed on the island. It's very primitive, bring an ice chest with water.

What a great resource for San Diego dog owners! Gorgeous off leash park where you can walk and romp with the dogs for miles along the water. Met some very nice people and fun dogs. Can't wait to visit next year.
