    nice beach!

    Hi - this is not the dog beach but I really liked it. I went to the entrance off of 24th which has a nice parking lot. Its a wide beach where you can walk you dog a long way. I kept my dog on leash and leashes are required. That being said, I did see locals with their dogs off leash. I thought this was a beautiful and relaxing beach especially if you want to walk you dog. Otherwise - Dog beach is where the dogs all run off leash.

    Leash Law Applies on Cayucos Beach

    I joined this site to find more dog-friendly places to travel...As the name Bring Fido implies, however, people just post their opinion and not facts.
    Cayucos Beach is not a "dog beach". It is dog-friendly, but leashes are required. You will find many off-leash dogs running around, but it is not lawful to do so. Please be respectful and keep your dog on a leash. If there's no one else around maybe you can let 'em go for a bit (but you risk a citation) and when you see others walking towards you put them back on the leash because it's the law and the right thing to do (respecting others).
    For nearby legal off-leash areas: There is a park in Cayucos by the cemetery that is an off-leash dog park and for the beach just south of Cayucos is Morro Bay dog beach where there is "a portion" of the beach by Toro Creek that is designated as an off-leash dog beach.

    Quiet dog beach

    Stopped in here to let the dogs burn off some energy and play in the ocean. Very few people at ocean. Saw numerous dogs running around. Most people had them off leash, while some kept them on. Clean beach, nice hard packed sand to run on. Fun, quiet little town to take the dogs too.

    Beautiful Beach

    Follow the address to find front row parking at the beach. Full of soft sand and wide hard pack sand to walk your dog on. Lots of other dogs, and everyone kept their dogs on leash.

    Great Beach For Dogs And Humans

    We stayed the weekend there and Nala my dog had a blast. She roamed off leash the whole time and had fun. It’s a nice little beach for humans and dogs.

    Nice Beach

    It’s a great beach! We kept our dogs on their leashes, but there were lots of dogs off leash! Everyone was friendly and the beach was clean!

    Cayucos is a leash free beach

    Emma and I LOVE this beach. You can let your dog run free and the waves are usually small enough to let her swim. I don't know where RC is from, but you should get your facts straight. Great beach.
