    Dogs must be on a leash here

    Please follow the law and keep your dog on a leash here. Reviews that mention off leash are incorrect. As previously stated, you can be fined for having your dog off leash here.There are many seabirds and harbor seals that nest and rest here. If dogs repeatedly scare them away they will not come back.

    This is ON LEASH

    This is actually a marine sanctuary. If your dog chases shorebirds or harasses wildlife you can be fined $10,000. It’s a beautiful place but please respect this environmentally sensitive area. Birds nest in the surrounding shrubs and feed here during migration. These policies are enforced by local rangers and fines are handed out. Your dog can run off leash on Montara Beach to the north without harassing wildlife.

    Great off-leash swimming beach

    This beach was a little tough to find, but once we did (easier if approaching from the north), it was wonderful. Great swimming, not too crowded, ok for pups to be off-leash.

    Excellent

    This is my favorite off leash beach! Lots of room, if your dog is a bit shy. Great socializing and play for our pups.

    Best swimming area for dogs. Lots of dogs off leash playing fetch on weekend mornings. Great place to socialize your pup.
