    Steep walk to beach, big waves, beautiful

    This is an on-leash beach with a steep walk from the paid parking lot (was $2/hr, cards only) down to the sand. The waves were too big for my 45 lb pup to swim, but the views were beautiful. We even saw 3 dolphins playing close by in the water!

    Fun Beach

    This is supposed to be an ON Leash beach, but be prepared for dogs to be off leash.

    The trail down to the beach is steep, but manageable, it is gravel and dirt, and can be slick.

    There is paid parking, it does take credit card.

    There is no running water, and only port-a-potties available as restrooms, but they were clean.

    Overall a good fun Beach, would be better if people followed the rules.

    Wrong post - wrong beach

    Sorry for my inaccurate post. I was thinking of half moon bay beach. We went to Poplar beach but could not get down to the sand, it looked like a very treacherous trail.

    NO DOGS ON THE SAND!

    So disappointing we couldn't take our dog ON the beach. I don't know what these other reviewers are talking about. Is it the same Poplar Beach in Half Moon Bay? Or maybe the park changed their rules. You can take your dog on the path, but not on the sand.

    Great Beach

    Great open area for dogs to run without disturbing other people. I come once almost every week with my West Highland Terrier. Although officially off leash, as long as your dog behaves itself, most people have their dogs off leash. You can walk down the beach to avoid people.It's also very close to 92

    Crowded

    Went on a beautiful Sunday. It was so crowded there was no opportunity to take our dogs off the Leah...and no one else did either. My 4 bones rating is because it's a beautiful setting. We'll have to experience the beach on a weekday.

    Beautiful Dog Beach

    Great dog beach! Was surprised to see how many dog walkers come here.
    The beach is great, just watch out for the never ending trails of horse poop (EVERYWHERE!) on the beach & the lovely smell.... If you can put up with that, you are golden ????
    It is posted as a leashed beach but 90% of the dogs out there have been off leash; all very well behaved dogs, so far.

    Great beach for dogs

    We had a great time at this beach! Most dogs were off leash, including ours, but they were all well behaved and the owners paid close attention to them. The hill getting down is steep, but not bad as long as you have the right shoes. It was a beautiful and peaceful beach.

    Great dog beach!

    Great beach...and although officially on leash, many well behaved dogs enjoying it off leash. We were able to walk down the beach and get to a place with very few people around.
    Ratings could only be better if officially off leash!
    And thanks for the above post with GPS settings...they were right on!

    Very dog friendly!

    Lovely beach. Not too crowded and you'll see many pups around on leash. A couple people also have their dogs off leash. Our pup had a lovely time! The only downside is entrance had a lot of horse poop but once you pass the steep entry, it's lovely!

    Great Beach to take doggie

    Great beach to take doggie. I only saw one other dog on a leash.Others were off leash. Sand is a little rough than I'm use to. Lots of horse poop near the cliff on the beach so walk further in closer to the ocean. I didn't find the hill to get to the ocean very steep. But I may have gone down a different hill. I used the one near the metered parking lot. When using a GPS to get there, use address 152 Poplar St. Half Moon Bay

    This is probably your best bet for a dog beach. Dogs are supposed to be leashed, but many aren't, which is a pain. Be warned the cliff to the beach is a bit steep.
