Great place for dogs. Not a good place for leashes tho ... they can run free and should. Perfect excuse to give them a bath too. Wear them out and clean them up! Win, win.

Easy to get to and clean. Seems like everyone is very good at cleaning up after their dogs here. So nice to have a place for the dogs to run free.

With miles of open beach along the Pacific shores, the City Huntington Beach wisely set aside a segment of beach that allows dogs and their dog owners.

Yes, off the pier fishing is allowed without the need to purchase a license. Right past doggy Beach, many people fish off the beach near the jetty.

Yes you can swim there. The water is pretty warm not bad. Some of the surfers wear wet suits but most don't. Hope you have a great time !
