This beach is a great place to take your dog! In the summer, dogs have to be on a leash but, in the winter, they can be off the leash. The beach is clean and my dog loves to run in the water!

Very nice place to bring your dog! It's open, friendly, and exciting. The waves aren't too rough for the dogs and in my experience it's been pretty easy to find parking. I wish they had a latched gate on the staircase so my dog didn't have such open access to the condos nearby, but it's a only a minor set back.

We love dog beach and so does our dog Hank! There is a short hike up for a view if you want to do it and always beach volleyball happening too!

Nice clean beach where dogs can be off leash from labor day to Memorial day. They run up and down on the sand and in and out of the surf. Dogs of all sizes and breeds. They are welcome during the summer but must be on leash. Also good for families and kids.

One of the best dog parks you can take your dog to. Usually pretty crowded and hard to find parking spot

Awesome beach for our fury friends. I prefer the south side of dog beach for my little dog. It's a bit more calm

Let your dog run FREEEEEEE. Dog beach is just a 2 minute walk down the beach. Be part of the "play" with all sizes and types of dogs. You will see the most adorable pups and definitely will not get away without at least one lick or two!

Amazing beach. Not as crowded as mission beach or pacific beach. Waves are pretty good if you are into surfing. Great just to come hang out and see the ocean.

North Del Mar dog beach is a great, less crowded beach for people to bring their dogs. Located right across from The Brigatine And the Del Mar Fairgrounds, parking can be difficult so try to get there early if you plan to drive

What a cute dog beach with beautiful rock formations as a backdrop! All the dog owners were super friendly and the dogs were playful! Will definitely be back!

If I had a dog, I would def take him here! It's great to see all the dogs with each other and other dog owners. It may get a little crowded in the summer and weekends but it's def worth the trip!

I love seeing all the dogs there free to roam around and just be dogs. It's only open to dogs like that when it's off-season... so you won't see too many dogs during the summer but once Labor Day passes... it's a Dog Beach for sure!
