“place to left dogs run”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

its in ocean beach near jetty and river mouth. please scoop up your dogs poop or it will get so germmy and smelly and pooopy they might shut it down. They insist on not writing short reviews so.. ocean beach is a quiet beach not alot of colleged kids party action no boardwalk , and small area of seawall by sidewalk which sitting therfe will get you picture on the police most wanted to harass list. OB is not a place to make any quick moves when it comes to the boys in blue, they like to shoot their guns even if you don got one.. teach your dogs a don't shoot surrender pose like layi ng down with paws over eyes. we don't need no more stinking badges, i heard some old lady say the other day after they mistook her for some wanted tweaker. but the dogs love dog beach , enjoy be safe

“Five paws up”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

If you have a dog you have to come here and see the scene. Very popular and being right at the ocean I can not imagine a more scenic spot for the humans that many assorted canines bring with them.

“Yukky!”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

Dog owners don't clean up after their pets, so it's hard to walk here. At the edge of the river/ocean junction, so there are dangerous currents here frequently.

“Incredible beach!”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

We try to go there as much as we can with our two Newfoundland dogs. This beach is amazing for them because this particular breed of dogs is crazy about water. They can run and play along with other dogs, have fun in the water to get cooler in the summer, and do some exercise. Just be careful with their paws when the sand is really hot, it could be harmful for them. As for us, we enjoy running with our pets, talking to other dogs’ owners and sharing our experiences besides just getting relaxed after a long week of work. It is just incredible how you see all the dogs playing and being so happy! If you have a dog and live in San Diego, you simply cannot miss this spot. Get there early, though, the place gets cramped.
