Dog Beach for Dogs and Pets in Huntington Beach California Photos and Information

Dog Beach goes to the Dogs in Huntington Beach's City Beach: Bring a Towel

Huntington Beach Dog Beach attracts a hefty crowd of dog owners from around Southern California. News and weather men from L.A. drive their pets down to this beach to play.


Huntington City Beach's Dog Beach is located in a portion of HB City Beach parallel to Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) between Seapoint Street and Golden West Street. To park your car when driving from the south on PCH, you must make a U-turn to enter the parking lots between Seapoint and Golden West Streets, where pay meters charge $0.25 per 10 minutes.  Hotels that accept dogs include Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort (10 pounds or less), Residence Inn Huntington Beach, The Pacific Inn - Seal Beach (7 miles from Dog Beach), Balboa Inn in Newport Beach (8.5 miles).


Dog Beach is a public beach located down a sloped hill north of the parking lots. You can see people without dogs there, as well, and lots of surfers, surf camps for children mostly during the summer months, Junior Lifeguards surf program and sometimes ocean kayaking. While Huntington Beach Dog Beach is a very popular spot to take your canine friends, the popularity of such dog-friendly beaches has grown and other areas also have created policies to allow owners to bring pets, including San Diego's Ocean Beach and Long Beach. Dogs are not allowed on other beaches in Huntington Beach and owners will be asked to leave if they bring dogs to other portions of Huntington City Beach or Bolsa Chica State Beach and Huntington State Beach.


While Huntington Beach, California is a pet-friendly city, the hotel options for pet accommodations are very limited. As of this writing, only one resort, Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort has a policy to accept pets of 10 pounds or less. If you are traveling in an RV, you can keep your pet with you in nearby Bolsa Chica State Beach, Huntington City Beach's Sunset Vista RV Camping or Huntington by the Sea RV camping facility. 


Included in the Ten Commandments of Dog Beach Care: Be sure to clean up your dog's mess. Under the Golden Rule, dog owners are also asked and encouraged to clean up the mess of any dog, no matter whose. Operated by the Preservation Society. Metered parking is available in several lots along Pacific Coast Highway. 

This beach is also open to all people and  is a popular spot for surfers who find the waves pretty good at this location.
