Love the idea of a dog beach, but it's not the best idea for a little dog. There are too many big dogs and my little pup, Coco, tends to get knocked over by the big guys! Parking is also a bit of a problem...More

We have taken our dogs here several times, and they have a great time. A quiet stretch of beach for the dogs, with parking, a path to access, and even poop bags. The dogs run off-leash in the sand and surf and interact with other...More

A great place where everyone, including humans, is free to roam the beach.... all of our dogs love it and we are grateful to the City of Huntington Beach for supporting it as they do.

This beach is so beautiful and the vibes are so good. Feels like I'm in dog heaven every time we go there with our dogs. Many happy friendly dogs running around playing with just about everybody.

If you enjoy the beach and your dog does too, this is the place for you both. The people who come here are like-minded and there is seldom a problem between the dogs because the owners are paying attention

Yes, off the pier fishing is allowed without the need to purchase a license. Right past doggy Beach, many people fish off the beach near the jetty.

Yes you can swim there. The water is pretty warm not bad. Some of the surfers wear wet suits but most don't. Hope you have a great time !

Huntington State & City Beach have campgrounds. You could put up a tent of this type. Free standing tents you don't see. Most campers are motorhomes or trailers
