My husband and I love walking to Dog Beach and back to the pier. We try to go at sunset or low tide. It is always fun to watch the dogs run and play at the beach. We don't bring our old dog to the beach but we enjoy seeing all the puppies and dogs.

If you're going for a beach stroll this is a fun spot to visit just to watch the dogs play and the locals chill. Dogs have the right of way!

Loved the dog park. I have a small 7 lb dog who would love to run here. Only concern is the dogs being off leash. Lovely beach.

It was a rainy day in LA and we wanted to give our dog a taste of the ocean. Off we want to Huntington Beach, the closest to LA of the Orange county beaches. Clean beach, good people and good dogs. We had a great time, will visit again.

If you are dog lover - great beach!! But if you are just trying to have a nice walk on the beach you will encounter many dogs not on leashes. It is such a treat to come into shore on a surfboard or a body board and have some strange dog staring you in the face. Then there are the... More

Nice to have a beach for dogs to enjoy. Fun seeing the squirrel habitats so close to it. They live in tunnels just off the beach.

This was our first visit to the Huntington Dog Beach. Our pug & malti-poo loved walking in the sand. There were lots of other friendly dogs & people as well. We would love to visit again sometime.
