Avila Beach

X
The last beach near the point at Avila Beach has a lot of dogs that are off-leash; although it's posted they are not allowed between 10am-5pm we saw LOTS during that time frame. The beach is bordered by rocks jutting out into the water and a rocky cliff up to the street, so it's a natural sort of fence. There are doggie bags available for use. Parking is along the road and access is free.

Vineyard Dog Park

The dog park design was created by LGA, an architectural firm under the leadership of Leonard Grant, based in Pismo Beach. The park is about 1 acre in size and is cross fenced for separate “big dog” and “small dog” play areas. The park construction and maintenance will be paid for by donations and loans from dog owners and local businesses.
