Carmel Beach

This is a beautiful beach with the happiest dogs on the planet -- you'll see every shape, size, and age, running in the sugar sand and splashing in the aquamarine surf. There is no leash law for dogs and fires are permitted on the beach south of 10th Avenue. Public restrooms and a public telephone are available at the Ocean Avenue end of Carmel Beach. Open 6am to 10pm.

Garland Ranch Regional Park

Garland Ranch Regional Park is a gorgeous park with the Carmel River running through it. Dogs are allowed off-leash in certain areas, including in the river and on selected trails (not the horse trails). Atop the northern crest of the Santa Lucia Mountains, the trails encounter open oak savannas and spectacular vistas. Along the way, you will travel through maple-filled canyons, dense oak woodlands, and thick stands of chaparral.

Carmel Plaza

Carmel Plaza is a pet-friendly shopping area located along Ocean Avenue in Carmel. Many of the plaza's boutiques, studios, and restaurants cater to dogs and their humans. In the courtyard of the plaza, you and your pup will find the famous Fountain of Woof. You and Fido can relax by the fountain before he takes a sip from the fountain for good luck. As an added bonus, Carmel Plaza is just a half-mile from the pet-friendly Carmel Beach.

Seventeen Mile Drive

When Fido is ready for a tail wagging, tongue hanging stroll through coastal California, take him for a drive along this picturesque stretch of highway through the communities of Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach, CA. Pick up a map when you pay the toll required for entry and make several stops along the way for photos of the scenic views.
