Visited last week for a stroll on the beach with my relatives and their 2 dogs. Everyone was SO friendly and stopped by to talk, pet our dogs, share dog stories, take pictures, etc. Its really one of a kind vs other dog parks as it's on a long stretch of the beautiful Huntington Beach that allows dogs. You don't... More

A beautiful stretch of scenery and open space for you pooch to roam. Never overly crowded because us dog lovers don't mind and influx of canine in all angles. Bring change mon-thurs to get good parking on the street at the meter. Be prepared to hike it if arriving around noon on weekends. Pick up ya poop.

We celebrated my pup's 6mo bday here & we had a blast! It was one big pooch party...sooo many dogs all shapes & sizes, running, fetching, playing & swimming. It is the best place to take your dog!

There's plenty of room and the people are friendly. If you've been to a dog park you know the drill. The bluffs have a great view of the ocean and Long Beach in the distance. We've been taking our small dog to Dog Beach for at least 5 years and only have had 2 problems with other dogs in that... More

We love that there is a great place for puppies! There was so much room for dogs to run, swim, play and chase balls with their parents. The beach was clean and well maintained and there was plenty of room for dogs and people! Good job, Huntington!

We visited Huntington Dog beach whilst on our USA vacation. It was great to see the dogs playing in such a nice big space. We didn't have a dog to take to the beach as we were visiting from Australia but it was awesome to visit to make some 4 legged friends.

Wonderful off leash beach for your dog...and bring your friends. It's far enough away from the pier to not be too crowded, and watching all the pups play is a treat!

Perfect off leash dog "park" on the beach. No fee just walk up and enjoy. Watch your step as usual their are dog parents who fail to clean up after their doggies. Only set back is how far away the human potty is compared to other areas of the beach.

Huntington Beach Dog Beach is a very nice off leash dog beach. Plenty of room for your pooch to roam on the sand or in the ocean. Parking can be tight at times, but people seem to come and go enough to catch a decent parking spot (paid parking on the street). We will definitely be back.
