Nice concept but not working very well. Dogs running loose with all types of doggy sizes & personalities. Even worse...the mix of human personalities .

This is a great place to spoil your pooch! Locals are friendly, and the beach is clean with good facilities.

What a fabulous place. Love that HB sets this part of the beach aside for dog lovers. Downside, it can get crowded on weekends and sometimes people bring dogs that are too aggressive for this setting.

We love bringing our pup here. Parking is usually pretty ample and the dogs are friendly and playful. If you come, please pick up after your dog (and yourself).

Whether you have a dog or just like seeing dogs happy off leash running through the sand and surf- this is the place! Low tide is the best time to go. Parking is available at golden west and pch. Also on pch. Walk west towards sea point for a more quite part of dog Beach. Pack a lunch, bring a... More

Great place to let your dog run free! For the most part, a nice place for the dogs. Might be better to head over during the week, if possible. Gets very crowded in the summer and weekends. In the last few years, there appear to be more unpredictable dogs, maybe because it's getting very popular... but it's great to let... More

This long stretch of sand along Bolsa Chica State Beach is almost always full of dogs and people. To park, look for the pay stations in the paved lots on Pacific Coast Highway. A heads up: Be aware of visitors (without dogs) who are picnicking or sun-bathing -- they sometimes get annoyed when a dog approaches them, but come on,... More

Love driving there and spending time one the beach with my dog. Owners don't always clean after their pet but the beach is as clean as it can be expected.

Its one of the few beaches I've seen with off leash dog area. There is parking right at it plus bag areas as well. There is no fence so dogs can sprint a little too far if you don't watch.
