We love bringing our dog maya. She doesnt get to be around other dogs much but she has such a blast mingling with all the other dogs. We love this place

I absolutely love Huntington Dog Beach. It's very clean, everybody that goes there is typically very nice (and so are their furry friends). There are poop bags available, plenty of trash cans, and TONS of beach space.

Wide, spacious beach. Different conditions at different times of day but my Rescue loves if waves are crashing or if there is a large sand bar she can go out to. I’ve never had an issue with another dog, even though my dog gets scared...More

A nice, long stretch of beach where your dog can run free. Other local beaches do not allow dogs (even on-leash). The only down side is it can be busy and difficult to park. Also watch out for others with ill-behaved pups, I’ve seen a...More

Someone told me this is the only off-leash dog beach in LA, Orange and San Diego counties. I don’t know if I believe that, but if there is another, it must be a long way away. This is not a great beach for people, however....More
