Dog Beach

Huntington Dog Beach is 1.5 miles of pure pooch paradise.  It's tough to find a beach where your furry friend can frolic off-leash in the waves, but Surf City USA's dog beach is much loved by the cold-nosed crew (and their human companions) for this very reason.

Named one of the country's top 10 Fido-friendly beaches by Fido Friendly Magazine and a Critic's Choice pick in the Orange County Register, Dog Beach is the perfect place to spend a few hours with your pooch.

Located along Pacific Coast Highway between Seapoint Avenue and 21st Street, Huntington Dog Beach is free to the public and open daily from 5 am to 10 pm.  Dog Beach amenities include public restrooms, parking, a grassy area with picnic tables, and doggie waste bags.  Parking is located in two hourly parking lots and along Pacific Coast Highway.  Parking meters accept Visa/Mastercard, currency and coins.  Parking is $1.50 per hour.  Please note parking rates are subject to change without notice at any time. 

To get the most out of your day at Dog Beach, please remember the following:

  • Maintain control of your dog at all times.
  • Please pick up after your dog and dispose of waste in the trash cans. Doggie waste bags are available free of charge for this purpose.
  • If your dog is new to Dog Beach, take it slow. Keep them on their leash until you can be sure of how they will react to the sand, sea, and especially other dogs and people.
  • Under existing city ordinance, dogs must remain leashed. However, for the past several years only unleashed, potentially dangerous dogs have been cited or removed.

Please note alcohol, glass, and smoking are prohibited on Dog Beach.  For more information about Dog Beach, visit the Preservation Society of Huntington Dog Beach website.
