Ocean Beach in San Francisco is very popular with dog owners because dogs are allowed on the beach off-leash from stairwell 1 to stairwell 21. South of stairwell 21, dogs must remain on leashes.

    Huge Beach!

    Our dog loved it here! Lost a bone since it was crazy crowded and parking was difficult to find near the off leash area.

    Beach fun

    It's a beach, and beaches are fun! Lots of locals bring their dogs here, and it's fine to let them off leash. The only thing I would caution is that this beach tends to have a lot of stuff wash up that your dog might try to eat, typically more in the way of seaweed and the like than jellyfish (though we have seen those, too, so be careful!).

    fun times!

    Brought my pup here for her first beach experience- she loved it! Huge beach. Saw plenty of other pups.
