Top 200 Places: Huntington Dog Beach

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012


Huntington Dog Beach
Pacific Coast Hwy (Hwy 1)
Huntington Beach,
California 92647
714-841-8644

This beautiful beach is about a mile long and allows dogs from 5 am to 10 pm. Dogs must be under control but may be off leash and owners must pick up after them. Dogs are only allowed on the beach between Golden West Street and Seapoint Ave. Please adhere to these rules as there are only a couple of dog-friendly beaches left in the entire Los Angeles area. The beach is located off the Pacific Coast Hwy (Hwy 1) at Golden West Street. Please remember to pick up after your dog… the city wanted to prohibit dogs in 1997 because of the dog waste left on the beach. But thanks to The Preservation Society of Huntington Dog Beach (http://www.dogbeach.org), it continues to be dog-friendly. City ordinances require owners to pick up after their dogs. It is suggested that you bring plenty of quarters in order to feed the parking meters near the beach.
