Doran Regional Park

Doran Regional Park, also known as Doran Beach, is a pet-friendly stretch of sand in Bodega Bay. Featuring a wide, 2-mile stretch of beach, it's the perfect place for a walk with your pooch. Visitors enjoy walking, picnicking, playing in the sand, flying kites, surfing and bird-watching at this awesome beach. Make sure you and your leashed pup pay a visit to the rock jetty on the west end of the park. There's even an area of the beach dedicated to off-leash play for pups. Parking is $7. Doran Beach can be accessed every day of the week from 7am until sunset. Visit Website

    Tide Affects Off Leash Area

    The off leash area varies in size by the tide - disappears altogether at high tide and plenty of play space at low tide. That said, the on leash area is huge.

    Fun But Crowded

    Thought we’d try out Doran beach since all dogs must be on leash and my dog has what I call “stranger danger.” It was a great opportunity to socialize him without putting anyone at risk however the beach is super thin. It’s long but there’s not a ton of room to walk along the beach on a busy weekend.
