We have taken our Yorkie to the dog beach in Huntington twice in 2016 before school was out. We keep her on a leash as we are not sure how she'd react around other bigger dogs. The beach had a few dogs & owners. Most...More

There is no such thing as a bad time at dog beach. The beach is beautiful and the dogs are Incredible. Even on a bad day dog beach is perfect. Just ask your dog🐺🐺😜😜

I mean dogs, AT the beach. Great place for mans best friend. They can run, hike, swim and sun (and maybe even surf) right alongside you! it's way better than a dog park!

Went with friends & their dogs. If was great beach! They had local bathrooms. Only thing I regret is didn't get shirt from People out front selling them once we first got there.

Took the dogs there midweek on a gloomy day. Lots of available parking and tons of cool dogs and people. Low tide - dogs had an absolute blast!

Love this beach, and we took 4 dogs. Two we kept on leash, and one of those (an old 3-legged female) still got attacked because some owners just let their dogs run wild even when they have no training or control. Lacking "official" oversight/enforcement, it...More

Im lucky to live walking distance to this location so I'm here too often to put a number on it. It's a great place to let your pup roam off leash - as long as his energy is mellow and calm. Fav time is on...More

I am a dog lover. I often go to this part of HB without my dog just to watch other peoples' dogs be happy dogs. Nearly every time, I leave with sandy paw prints from someone's goofball sweet dog. If you love the beach and...More

Go for it....splash away - Huntington Beach is famous for surf, but not down at the dog end of it...
Is the dog beach closed off? Or can dogs easily get out and run away? I'm asking because I want to take my dog here but don't know if she'll run too far away.

Response from EquineDoc | Reviewed this property |
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
I have a annual parking pass, but I normally go to the parking lot off Brookhurst. Is there parking near the dog beach where I can use my parking pass? We will have a cooler, chairs and a puppy to carry so we will need to park somewhat close. Thanks :)

The best place to park is the south side of GoldenWest and PCH. I think the closest parking you can use your parking pass is the south side of the pier. It would be a good walk in each direction. I usually pay the meter... More
