Great place to exercise your dog. One of the few beaches you can take your fur baby to. Family friendly. Dog water fountain and doggie bags available.

Mile long beach on the San Diego river and Pacific Beach. Dogs run free. Cool low-tide pool to splash in. Attentive owners, all clean up after their pooches. Your pooch pal will love you even more for this visit.

We had a great time! The beach was crowded.... but surprisingly clean considering the number of dogs!! All of the dogs seemed to get along and had a great time!

Sorry to say it but its the dirtiest for San Diego County's dog beaches... granted OB is not exactly La Jolla... as nice as I can put it. Its not the dogs... its the dog owners... sad but true. Coronado and Del Mar are better...

It was fun watching the dogs romp and play in the sand and in the water. How nice for the dogs and their dog friends to have a place to play.

Huge dog beach that allows off leash. Lots of dogs. Go at Low tide and the beach is beautiful and you can climb up on the large rocks from the sand.

Everyone (including the dog) will have a great time at Dog Beach. The beach was very clean. We did not encounter a single person( in 3 days) that was not having a good time. Very relaxed, and family friendly. We enjoyed playing in the surf,...More

Not specifically, but the beach is so HUGE that you can always find a remote area with less dogs. Its an amazing place! You should go!
