- MelanieJun. 14, 2021Great place
Everyone we met was super nice and a normal dog owner. They get you are at a dog beach and if you don’t know what that means “nough said.” Our pup is a year old and she has a blast. All the dogs, that I could see, were having a good time and enjoying being off leash. I don’t know if it is off leash year round but if anyone knows please leave a comment.

We love, love, love going to this beach with our dog! It's a beautiful, clean beach for humans to enjoy sunbathing and swimming, and it's perfect for dogs. I've found dog owners here to be very responsible.
- RachelJun. 15, 2020Love This Dog Beach
this beach has been a spot for us and our digs for decades ... love it !!! parking in front of beach .. small waves ... clean really nice group of people go there ❤️
- MeganJan. 14, 2020Huge area!!
This place is great for dogs who like to be socialized. Always a bunch of dogs, check for off the leash season.
- SharonAug. 3, 2019Nice Beach!
We brought Joey here knowing that she would have to stay on leash so I can’t count that against this place. The beach was clean. There is ample paid parking. We had fun digging in the sand and meeting other awesome dogs.
- LeslieJul. 20, 2019Beware of rude dog owners
I went there with my 3 children and my 11 month old black lab, that is sweet and well behaved. My dog was on leash but I walked around to socialize with other dogs, and was verbally threatened by a dog owner for my puppy barely jumping on her. Her and her husband were so rude and repeatedly threatened me and my kids if we didn’t leave. My dog was not aggressive AT ALL! I would expect more from dog owners, especially in Del Mar. Beware of this kind of harassment. The first time I went I didn’t have any issues when off leash was allowed. If you don’t like dogs, why are you at dog beach!?
- GillianJun. 30, 2019Don’t waste your time during summer
My husband and I went to this beach several times last year. We went during the off season and summer and never once had any problems. Not sure if new rules were posted or if it was because no one enforced it in the past But now you have to keep the dogs leashed from June 15-labor day. So really there is no point of it being a dog beach. Not to mention there is always tons of people fishing and all they have is a port a potty.
- TeresaJun. 22, 2019Great beach!!!
Loved this beach, lots of parki.g close by and not too crowded even on a Saturday in the Summer.
- NancyMore than a year agoDogs must remain on leash
Dogs must remain on leash during summer months. No public restrooms on beach. Very disappointing.
- DeserieMore than a year agoGreat 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.
- HallieMore than a year agoEh.
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?!
- SusanaMore than a year agothe best dog beach
The beach was clean, the people were nice, all the dogs were happy, the water was warm and clean!! What a wonderful place!! I recommend this dog beach to everyone!!
- BrandonMore than a year agoGreat 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.
- JodieMore than a year agomy 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.
- PaulinaMore than a year agogood 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.
- CarrieMore than a year agoFun 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.
