    Dogs must remain on leash

    Dogs must remain on leash during summer months. No public restrooms on beach. Very disappointing.

    Great Beach for all

    Very clean. There were a lot of dogs running around and everyone was very good with their dogs and one another. Parking was a bit crazy, but not overwhelming since we got there early.

    It's a lovely place, but it's closed to off-leash dogs during the warmest months of the year!! What's the point then?!

    Great dog beach

    Great beach! My dogs loved it! The beach was very clean. There are rocks for the dogs to crawl on and you can follow the beach North and up the waterway for gentle waters. We had to pay for parking; it was about $3/hr.

    my dogs loved it!!

    The beach was full of dogs today and it was so fun. I didn't see any dog poop but the closest station with bags is closer to the volleyball courts. There is only porta pottys but the cold probably won't have to staying there long enough to be using it.

    good outing

    Most the dogs were on the north side of the lagoon which is inaccessible via 29th street at high tide. Enter the north side of the beach off of 101.

    Fun times

    We love this dog beach! The off leash times are great and the dogs and pet parents are fun! The only down sides are: need to bring your own baggies and others don't tend to clean up after their dogs. This allows other dogs to eat fecal matter which can cause illness! Please pick up after your pets. Also bring your own water there is only port-a-potties.
